Kuwait's emir has accepted the resignation of the Gulf Arab state's cabinet, state news agency KUNA reported on Thursday.

"His Excellency the emir of the country accepts the resignation of the government," KUNA said.

Kuwait's cabinet resigned as expected on Thursday to avoid the questioning by parliament of three ministers, all members of the ruling al-Sabah family, amid calls for political and economic reform.

Lawmakers had asked to question the ministers in the latest of a series of challenges by an unusually assertive Arab parliament that have delayed important economic reforms.
