KUWAIT (Reuters) – Kuwait has invited Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to visit, state news agency Kuna said on Monday, as the countries seek to settle their differences over allegations of abuse of migrant workers in the Gulf state. After the body of a Filipino was discovered in a freezer in a Kuwait apartment, Mr Duterte arranged free flights for workers wishing to leave. Manila suspended sending workers to Kuwait in January after reports abuse by employers had driven several to suicide. Kuwait’s Deputy Foreign Minister Khalid al-Jarallah said on Monday the two countries had agreed to sign a deal to regulate working conditions. It was not clear if Mr Duterte had accepted Kuwait’s invitation.
