Kuwait and the Philippines have signed an agreement regulating some working conditions for domestic workers in the Gulf State, Kuwait's state news agency KUNA reported on Saturday.
The deal may end a two-month crisis sparked by reports that abuse by employers in Kuwait had driven several Filipinos to suicide.
The Philippines stopped sending workers to Kuwait in January after a Filipino migrant worker was found dead in a freezer.
