KUWAIT - Kuwait's prime minister survived a no-confidence vote against him in parliament on Thursday, according to a member of the assembly, after being questioned about favoring relations with Iran over other Gulf neighbors.

Earlier this month, 10 opposition lawmakers introduced a "non-cooperation" motion after the house questioned Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser al-Mohammad al-Sabah, a nephew of the country's ruler.Sheikh Nasser currently heads the seventh government since his appointment by Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah in 2006.
