Lebanon, Kuwait agree to cooperate after Captagon drug bust
The agreement was made in a phone call between the two countries' interior ministers, according to The National, after Lebanese customs seized nine million Captagon pills that were found hidden in a shipment of oranges to Kuwait on Wednesday.
The agreement comes as Lebanon tries to mend its relations with Kuwait and other Gulf states, which soured earlier this year when Lebanon's then-Information Minister George Kordahi described the war in Yemen as an aggression by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Kuwait expelled the Lebanese envoy in response to Kordahi's comments.
Kordahi resigned earlier this month, saying he wanted to help ease the diplomatic spat.
