KUWAIT, May 15, (KUNA): Ministry of Justice is striving to promote “swift justice” through hosting many workshops and seminars that shed light on this concept, Minister of Justice and Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Yagoub Al-Sanea said on Sunday.

As the biggest workshop on this matter is being underway, Al-Sanea said that the Ministry will encourage employees and leading figures to get familiarized with achieving this end result.

The workshop aims at meeting the requirements needed to achieve the principles of swift justice that could be found in ambitious and committed employees and a responsible Ministry towards serving members of the society.

Meanwhile, issues related to Arab and Muslim youth were the focus of a meeting held in Cairo on Sunday between visiting Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Humoud Al-Sabah and Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Sheikh Ahmad Al-Tayyib.

Sheikh Salman and the Imam discussed means of promoting cooperation between Kuwait and the Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, besides the efforts to immunize youth against deviant thoughts, so as not to fall prey to extremist and terrorist groups.

Talking to KUNA, the minister said he had expressed Kuwait’s high esteem of Al-Azhar and its role for combating deviant thoughts, as well as for disseminating moderation around the globe.

As part of the “Kuwait Capital of Islamic culture for 2016” celebrations, the country is keen on coordinating with fellow Arab countries to benefit from Al-Azhar’s significant efforts in various fields, he added.

This coincides with an Arab youth campaign launched by the Arab League today to counter terrorism, violence and extremism, he said.

“We rely much on this campaign for the protection of our youth, and to benefit from Sharia references in our Arab and Muslim worlds, particularly in Egypt,” he noted.

Meanwhile, the minister conveyed greetings of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, His Highness the Premier Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah and the Kuwaiti people to the Imam.

Meanwhile, the Executive Bureau of the Council of Arab Ministers of Youth met in Cairo on Sunday to prepare for the Council’s 39th session due tomorrow.

The Kuwaiti delegation to the Executive Bureau’s 60th session was led by Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Humoud Al-Sabah.

Emerging from today’s meeting, Egypt’s Minister of Youth and Sports Khaled Abdulaziz told reporters that the meeting agenda comprised a multitude of topics.

These include follow-up reports of the Council’s youth and sports committees on achievements over the past period, and views of Arab countries on requirements for promoting youth and the various sports activities, as well as drawing up an Arab strategy for the purpose, the minister added.

The meeting also addressed goals of a campaign launched earlier today, themed “No to Violence, No to Extremism, No to Terrorism.” The Arab unified strategy on youth and sports aims to define problems of youth in some Arab countries, Abdulaziz said.

Earlier today, the Arab Fund for Youth and Sports Activities held a meeting that discussed a host of topics, mainly the budget, the minister concluded.
