The Philippines presidential palace the Malacañang said Saturday talks between the governments of the Philippines and Kuwait continue to mend ties which have suffered a setback following the controversial rescue of what the Philippines embassy in Kuwait called ‘distressed’ Filipino migrants in Kuwait, according to abs.cbn.news.

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said discussions were ongoing between the two countries after Kuwait accused the Philippines of violating the country’s laws and saw it as an affront to its sovereignty which led to the declaration of Philippines ambassador to Kuwait persona non grata.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said talks between the two nations were “bearing fruit”. The issues between Manila and Kuwait were being ironed out, he said. “We do believe we can come up with a win-win solution that we don’t think our rights were violated (and), at the same time, the Kuwaitis will not think that we do not respect their domestic law,” Cayetano said.

The cnn.philippines, quoting Labor Undersecretary Jing Paras said Philippine Labor officials in Kuwait did not know about the rescue mission which caused the souring of the relationship between the two countries.

“The DoLE (Department of Labor and Employment) people, OWWA (Overseas Workers Welfare Administration) people were not part of this so-called rescue. It is purely a work of the Embassy,” Paras said.

He speculated that people may have called the Embassy to tip them off regarding supposedly maltreated workers, and responded. “Being Filipinos, that’s their job — to protect the Filipinos there — and they did their job,” Paras added.
