Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has raised security measures at its facilities due to regional tensions, according to Annahar daily.

Acting Prime Minister and Defense Minister Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah said that the nation's military would do everything in its power to protect Kuwait's border.

Meanwhile, Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah said that countries in the Gulf should "move on from their wounds and stand united" because of the "inflamed" situation in the region, state agency KUNA reported.

"The situation in the region is leading us in a direction that is closer to optimism on resolving the Gulf dispute in light of the keenness of all sides on Kuwait's mediation," he said.
