The government of Kuwait will put its flag back on six tankers now registered in Liberia in view of reduced tension after the Aug. 20 cease-fire in the Iran-Iraq War, a senior shipping official said on Wednesday.

But he said the government-owned Kuwait Oil Tanker Co. has no immediate plans to cancel the registration in the United States and Britain of 14 other tankers that qualify for naval protection in the Persian Gulf.
