KUWAIT, — Kuwait has legally acquired a plot of land in Mexico to build the first cemetery for the Muslim community in this Latin American country, diplomatic sources, quoted by the official news agency KUNA, announced here on Sunday.
According to the sources, Kuwaiti Ambassador to Mexico Samih Johar Hayat stated that the 7,500-square-meter land was gifted to the Kuwaiti diplomatic mission by “the friend of Kuwait, Mexico Governor Eruviel Avila Villegas.”
The diplomat received the documents of land acquisition from the governor on the eve of the last blessed ten days of the holy month of Ramadan.
Hayat said that the governor and the corresponding Mexican authorities signed those documents and completed the legal transactions in the presence of the lawyer of the embassy.
As of that moment, the plot of land became a “waqf” in the name of the people of Kuwait, “where Mexican authorities have no longer jurisdiction over it,” KUNA said.
