Kuwait's Amiri Diwan on Sunday described as "totally untrue and fabrications" remarks by Mubarak Al-Duwailah that he briefed Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah about details of his meeting with former Libyan leader Moammar al-Gaddafi.

Minister of the Amiri Diwan Sheikh Ali Jarrah Al-Sabah, in a statement carried by the Kuwait news agency (KUNA), also denied that the Emir had asked Al-Duwailah to convey the details of the meeting to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz.

Al-Duwailah made the claims during a television show with Mohammad Talal Al-Saeed, aired on June 23, 2020, as well as in a tweet on June 25, 2020.

His remarks are "totally untrue and fabrications," asserted Sheikh Ali.

He said noone could attribute anything to the Emir without "an official approval by the Amiri Diwan." Sheikh Ali warned against such actions which would entail legal action.
