Why would someone living in Kuwait want citizenship of a small island off the coast of Mozambique?

There are some cultural links here — Comoros is largely Sunni Muslim, and it is a member of the Arab League — but the deal largely comes down to economic factors.

Kuwait, perhaps fearful of what an angry Bidun minority may do, offered some limited reforms in 2011: allowing Biduns to claim health care and education, for example, and register their births, marriages and deaths.

But Human Rights Watch noted at the time, many Biduns complained that bureaucratic processes meant it was difficult to get these benefits. The government announced this would change in 2014 — but there was a catch.

Later that year, the government confirmed Comoros was the country in question, although no officials from Comoros commented.

It was only this week that Comoros finally ended speculation and confirmed that it was willing to accept a deal.

Excluding the contested island of Mayotte, the Comoros archipelago covers about 640 square miles, roughly half the size of Rhode Island.

Fewer than a million people live on the islands, made up of a variety of ethnicities that reflect the nation's location at a historical crossroads.

The Bidun form a sizable minority in Kuwait, where the total citizenship is about 1.5 million.
