Untitled Document KUWAIT: The government is finalizing its emergency plan this week in order to ensure that the country is protected from foreign dangers in case the regional situation escalates and a war breaks out between Iran and the USA.

An unnamed senior official revealed that the government has learnt that two aircraft carriers are scheduled to arrive in the Gulf and the Red Sea in preparation for the expected war at any time. The official said that this information led the government to accelerate its emergency plan preparations, which include arrangements for protecting all sectors and vital installations.

The senior official added that acting premier Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah has asked the Interior Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Khalid Al-Sabah and other ministers concerned with devising and implementing the emergency plan to hold meetings with the different government departments in order to discuss the plan and submit reports to reveal and resolve possible weaknesses before war breaks out in the area. He told ministers that Kuwait would not be immune from war and the government must be ready for any emer
gency.

The plan is divided into three parts, said the official - Security, Humanitarian and Vital Services. He added that the Kuwaiti Civil Defense and the Health and Interior Ministries would prepare the plan's outlines in order to discuss them and complete all parts of it.

The official said that Ahmad Al-Abdullah, the Commerce and Industry Minister and State Minister for National Assembly Affairs is preparing the livelihood and supplies plan, while Mohammed Al-Olaim, the Minister for Oil, Electricity and Water and Oil is preparing the electricity plan.

The Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) is ready to provide an alternative energy source in case of any conflict affecting power supplies, as well as supplying water from the nation's strategic reserves which stand at nearly two billion gallons and can supply the country for forty days
