KUWAIT CITY, Dec 5, (KUNA): Kuwait has taken concrete and effective measures to “assimilate the flow of militants returning from war zones”, a Kuwaiti diplomat said on Tuesday.
Addressing a foreign ministryhosted workshop germane to this issue, Kuwait’s Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah spoke of a strategy to rehabilitate the former fighters after they are guaranteed a fair trial. On Kuwait’s efforts to address the issue, he said that tremendous headway has been made in the fight against terrorism and extremism, a matter he pointed out was of paramount significance to the Kuwaiti leadership.
The statement was delivered by Assistant Foreign Minister for Development and International Cooperation Affairs Ambassador Nasser Al- Sabeeh on behalf of Al-Jarallah. Al-Jarallah said that this workshop proves Kuwait’s determination to ensure that peace and stability is restored to areas where conflict runs rampant.
The Kuwaiti envoy added that the scourge of terrorism continues to threaten global peace and security, leaving destruction and the spread of malicious ideologies in its wake. Al-Jarallah expressed hope that initiatives such as this workshop, which brings together a number of anti-terrorism experts as well as local and foreign officials, would prove instrumental in protecting youth from the ill effects of radicalization and terrorism
