Kuwait ‘denies’ reports charities funding terror – ‘Ministries jointly battle extremism’

KUWAIT CITY, Sept 22, (KUNA): A Kuwaiti diplomat denied Wednesday recent media reports that accused Kuwaiti charities of funding terrorism, pointing out these charities’ firm commitment to the country’s laws and regulations.

“I’m 100 percent sure that not a single fils from Kuwait goes to any terrorist organization or person in any part of the world,” Assistant Foreign Minister for Follow-up and Coordination Affairs Ambassador Nasser Al-Sabeeh confirmed, demanding those reports to prove otherwise. Al-Sabeeh made his remarks to reporters on the sidelines of attending Tajikistan’s National Day ceremony at the Tajik Embassy earlier today.

He also indicated that there is a solid coordination between the foreign ministry and the social aff airs and labor ministry in that regard, adding that each ministry perform its duty in accordance with the Kuwaiti laws inside and outside the country.
