TSA Inks Cooperation Deal with Kuwait

The United States’ Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Kuwait Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation to bolster aviation security.

Speaking to the press on October 8 after signing the agreement with TSA Administrator David Pekoske, DGCA’s President Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Humoud Al-Sabah said that the deal encouraged further cooperation between the two sides whether it was in the administrative, technical, or security levels.

The current cooperation between the DGCA and TSA has led to vast improvements in security at Kuwait International Airport, and the airport’s status has consequently improved significantly, both regionally and internationally.

Pekoske affirmed that the level of cooperation between Kuwait and the U.S. “really formalizes a strong partnership we already have” and added that both countries have worked very closely to improve aviation security both in Kuwait and the U.S.

He added, “the threat is ever present and we need as governments to be ahead of that threat the whole time. We are best equipped to protect our citizens if we cooperate together and that’s the essence of this agreement. There has been a lot of advancement in aviation security around the world. Kuwait is key among that overall effort”.
