ZURICH, Nov 9 (Reuters) FIFA has lifted its ban on the Kuwait football association (KFA) after the association agreed to meet several demands made by world soccer's governing body.

FIFA banned Kuwait from all international matches last month citing ''government interference in the association's affairs'' but announced a lifting of the ban today ''on a conditional basis''.

The organising body said it had made its decision following an extraordinary general assembly of the KFA on November 4.

The assembly voted to remove the board of directors whose appointment on October 9 led to the FIFA ban.

It also reinstated a transition committee set up by FIFA in March to lead the association into new elections.
