Kuwait strongly condemns the “brutal terrorist crime” that occurred at the French city of Nice, which witnessed the killing and injury of a number innocent people, the Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
In a statement, the ministry outlined Kuwait’s “principled and firm stance against all forms of terrorism, extremism and violence, rejected by all divine religions and human values and criminalised by international laws and norms.”
Kuwait underlined the need to increase global efforts to reject practices that may generate hatred between peoples and fuel extremism, radicalism and terrorism.
The Gulf Arab nation went on to extend its sincere condolences and commiserations to the families of the victims and wished those injured a speedy recovery.
