PM backs France in fight against terror

Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

PARIS: Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber AlSabah, HH the Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Ha­mad Al-Sabah, yes­ter­day reaf­firmed sup­port to France in the fight against ter­ror­ism. “Kuwait sup­ports the ef­forts of France and the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity in fight­ing ter­ror­ism which has be­come a threat to the sta­bil­ity and se­cu­rity of many world coun­tries,” Sheikh Jaber said in a state­ment shortly af­ter ar­riv­ing in Paris to par­tic­i­pate in the UN con­fer­ence on cli­mate change.

The prime min­is­ter called for col­lab­o­ra­tion of world coun­tries to con­front ter­ror­ism, which was re­jected by all faiths. He ex­pressed con­do­lences to France and the French peo­ple fol­low­ing the Nov 13 at­tacks in Paris that killed 130 peo­ple and in­jured over 350 oth­ers. Sheikh Jaber praised France’s “coura­geous” de­ci­sion to host the cli­mate sum­mit de­spite the “ter­ror­ist crimes in the French cap­i­tal”.

He said Kuwait was keen on par­tic­i­pat­ing in the cli­mate sum­mit, which was very sig­nif­i­cant due to the rapid cli­mate changes over the past two decades. Kuwait, he said, has been an ac­tive part­ner in pre­vi­ous sum­mits which were aimed at ad­dress­ing global warm­ing, and was amongst the lead­ing coun­tries that ap­proved the UN frame­work agree­ment on cli­mate change. He hoped the Paris cli­mate sum­mit would mark a “se­ri­ous start” that would pre­vent “dis­as­trous” con­se­quences on the en­vi­ron­ment and econ­omy. Sheikh Jaber called for nar­row­ing gaps be­tween in­dus­trial and de­vel­op­ing coun­tries, as well as in­creas­ing fund­ing to tackle cli­mate change. Kuwait has ex­erted huge ef­forts to elim­i­nate pol­lu­tion and pre­serve the en­vi­ron­ment, he said. — KUNA
