Manama: The Kuwaiti government has prepared since 2007 a comprehensive plan to ensure that any possible military attack against Iran over its nuclear programme would not have severe effects on Kuwait, a local daily reported.

According to Kuwait Times, the government has medicine and foodstuff in store to serve the country for six to eight months during "unexpected events," and that it has also set up a tripartite committee made up of officials from the health, interior and foreign affairs ministries to review the latest developments in that regard.

Unidentified sources told the daily that the foreign affairs committee would this week hold a meeting to follow up the developments and would discuss with Shaikh Sabah Al Khalid Al Sabah, the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister, the level of government's readiness in case of a sudden attack against Iran.
