Prime Minister Tammam Salam is scheduled to visit Kuwait on Sunday for talks with Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah, in his second Gulf state visit in a month.

Al-Liwaa daily said Wednesday that the one-day trip is aimed at sending a message that Lebanon's security situation has improved and that Kuwaiti citizens could visit the country.

Salam also aims at appeasing businessmen and encouraging them to invest in Lebanon, it said.

His talks would focus on Kuwaiti assistance to Lebanon to help it confront the burden of Syrian refugees, the newspaper added.

The PM traveled to Riyadh last month on his first official tour since he assumed office in February.

During his visit, he met with Saudi King Abdullah, senior Saudi officials and al-Mustaqbal movement leader ex-PM Saad Hariri.

Speaker Nabih Berri and Salam met on Tuesday with Kuwaiti Speaker Marzouq al-Ghanim, who stressed his country's continued support for Lebanon.

Al-Ghanim was in Beirut to study ways to assist the country of 4.5 million that has hosted more than 1 million of Syrians.

The rising number of refugees has left Lebanon struggling to cope with the massive influx of refugees.
