Kuwait has rejected the offer to co-host the 2022 World with Qatar due to the FIFA regulations to allow all participating nationalities inside their country.
This was based on a report by Israeli and Kuwait media.
“It is difficult to apply some of the major Fifa conditions in Kuwait, most notably allowing all nationalities … to enter the country or to issue visas upon arrival. Fifa rules prohibit banning the entry of any nationality, whether they are members of the teams or fans,” KFA President Shaikh Ahmad Yussef said to Al Rai, a Kuwaiti daily newspaper.
The statement above points likely to the Nation of Israel as both countries (Kuwait and Israel) have no diplomatic ties.
Kuwait also cited other reasons which include; dealing with alcohol permits and allowing certain advertisements in Kuwaiti stadiums.

Kenya is set to vie for a non-permanent seat at the United Nations (UN) Security Council.
The vote is coming in mid-2019.
The Kenyan cabinet has approved the plan and a strategy has been worked out to lobby members for the seat at the UN Security Council.
If Kenya wins this position by this year, it will increase their influence in International decision making particularly in the area of peace and security for their country and within the African region.
