(2) what support the Government of Kuwait give to the UK for the stationing of UK troops in that country.

As at 28 January, the UK had around 70 military personnel stationed in Kuwait. They are: a small defence section in the British embassy, a British military mission to the Kuwaiti armed forces, and a small number of logistics, movement and engineering staff.

The Government of Kuwait reimburse the British Government for the costs of the British military mission, and provide a small degree of support for our movements, logistics and engineering staff based in Kuwait.
