KUWAIT CITY, June 19: Law­mak­ers hailed the speech that His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Jab­ber Al-Sabah de­liv­ered Sun­day on the oc­ca­sion of the last 10 days of Ra­madan.

Na­tional Assem­bly Speaker Mar­zouq Al-Ghanim pointed out the Amir’s speech is com­pre­hen­sive as it in­cluded pri­or­i­ties in terms of na­tional and re­gional mea­sures.

He said the Amir called on ev­ery­one to work to­wards Gulf co­he­sion, com­bat­ing ter­ror­ism, ad­dress­ing Kuwaiti diplo­macy chal­lenges in view of the coun­try’s mem­ber­ship to the United Na­tions Se­cu­rity Coun­cil, co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the ex­ec­u­tive and leg­isla­tive au­thor­i­ties, and em­pow­er­ing the peo­ple es­pe­cially the youths as they con­sid­ered the cor­ner­stone of de­vel­op­ment.

He added the Amir was res­o­lute and de­ci­sive when he delved into Gulf relations and the need to heal any rift that might af­fect the Gulf re­gion, com­bat ter­ror­ism and deal with its dis­as­trous ef­fects on coun­tries in the re­gion.

He dis­closed the Amir also fo­cused on the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the ex­ec­u­tive and leg­isla­tive au­thor­i­ties,

em­pha­siz­ing the need for their co­op­er­a­tion to en­sure po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity and na­tional unity.

While talk­ing about the po­lit­i­cal and se­cu­rity chal­lenges, the Amir high­lighted as well the de­vel­op­ment is­sues and the role of youths in main­tain­ing sta­bil­ity and na­tion-build­ing be­cause these are the goals of good gov­er­nance in any suc­cess­ful na­tion, the speaker said.

The speaker then called on ev­ery­one to strictly com­ply with the di­rec­tives of the Amir.

On the other hand, MP Thamer Al-Su­mait as­serted that the speech in­cluded a youth ac­tion pro­gram; specif­i­cally the em­pow­er­ment of youths, in­tel­lec­tual rights pro­tec­tion and a com­pre­hen­sive view of de­vel­op­ment and se­cu­rity con­cepts.

He said the Amir ex­pressed the de­sire of all Kuwaitis in ad­dress­ing con­tro­ver­sies and heal­ing rifts in light

of the re­cent de­vel­op­ments in the re­la­tion­ship of Gulf broth­ers.

He also urged ev­ery­body to ad­here with the in­struc­tions of the Amir to main­tain na­tional unity and fight against ter­ror­ism and ex­trem­ism. He asked the govern­ment to re­al­ize the vi­sion of His High­ness in in­vest­ing in youths and pro­tect­ing them from ex­trem­ist thought.

He added the Amir set a road map for the work of the govern­ment and the Par­lia­ment when he talked about the need to com­plete eco­nomic and other files that the peo­ple of Kuwait have been wait­ing for a long time.

MP Askar Al-Anazi praised the valu­able con­tents of the speech; es­pe­cially on the sta­bil­ity of Kuwait, unity of the Gulf re­gion and the fight against ter­ror­ism.

In another de­vel­op­ment, mem­ber of the In­te­rior and De­fense Com­mit­tee which has been tasked to in­ves­ti­gate

cit­i­zen­ship forgery MP Salah Khur­sheed said they will soon in­vite the speaker to look into the in­for­ma­tion he has on the is­sue.

He ex­plained the meet­ing, which was sup­posed to take place dur­ing Ra­madan, was post­poned un­til af­ter Eid Al-Fitr be­cause the speaker traveled for Um­rah. He added the meet­ing with the speaker will be fol­lowed by that of In­te­rior Min­is­ter Sheikh Khaled Al-Jar­rah Al-Sabah to dis­cuss the is­sue. He said the com­mit­tee will ask the min­istry about the cit­i­zen­ship forgery cases pub­lished by the me­dia and those men­tioned dur­ing the ses­sion on the amend­ment of the Ad­min­is­tra­tive Court Law.

He re­vealed the com­mit­tee will meet im­me­di­ately af­ter Eid Al-Fitr to fi­nal­ize de­lib­er­a­tions on the bills in its agenda and re­sume work as a com­mis­sion of in­quiry into the forgery of na­tion­al­ity.
