Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

Chair­man of the par­lia­ment’s for­eign af­fairs com­mit­tee MP Kamel Al-Awadhi con­demned the ter­ror­ist at­tacks that claimed the lives of 150 and in­jured around 200 oth­ers in France. Awadhi stressed that ter­ror­ism is blind and that it strikes many places world­wide re­gard­less of re­li­gion, doc­trine or state. He also stressed that no­body could claim that ter­ror­ism orig­i­nates from cer­tain coun­tries, adding that Arab coun­tries were the most coun­tries that suf­fered from its im­pact. “Those at­tacks prob­a­bly present an op­por­tu­nity for the world to stand united and face this black ma­li­cious ter­ror­ism,” he un­der­lined.
