The ban of Kuwait by the International Olympic Committee remains

The International Olympic Committee's (IOC) suspension of Kuwait will remain in place but progress towards their reinstatement is being made, the organisation's Executive Board (EB) announced.

Kuwait was suspended in 2015 when the introduction of the sports law was seen to threaten the autonomy of sport in the country. Due to the ban, athletes from the country were forced to participate neutrally and under the IOC flag at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
