ABU DHABI - Kuwait will officially recognize Libyan rebel forces within days, its foreign minister said on Monday, making it the second Arab state after Qatar to formally acknowledge the group.

"We have already recognized them in a practical sense and officially recognizing them will come in a few days," Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammad al-Salem al-Sabah told Reuters in the UAE capital.

Last month, Qatar became the first Arab country to recognize Libya's rebels as the people's legitimate representative.
