Public Authority for Sport (PAS) Director General Hmoud Al-Flaiteh on Saturday called for serious and sincere efforts for lifting international suspension of the Kuwaiti sports.

Al-Flaiteh, in a statement, urged all stakeholders to cooperate for serving higher interests of the national sports.

On a related topic, he said a recently-formed settlement commission of the Kuwaiti Football Association is capable of implementing "the road map," worked out by FIFA to endorse "amendments required from Kuwait." His remarks came against backdrop of a recent decision by Sheikh Ahmad Al-Yusuf Al-Sabah to resign as chairman of the football association.

Sheikh Ahmad had also declared resignation of board members, following a visit by a joint commission of the international and Asian football federations to Kuwait for setting up the settlement committee, in response to FIFA's desire.

The settlement committee was formed with aim of "bolstering legality" of the Kuwaiti association.
