Kuwait keen on closer ties with hu­man rights bod­ies

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait is due to host on De­cem­ber 6-15 a con­tin­gent of United Na­tions (UN) of­fi­cials deal­ing with le­gal dis­crim­i­na­tion against women, Deputy For­eign Min­is­ter Khaled Al-Jar­al­lah said yes­ter­day. The visit is a tes­ta­ment to Kuwait’s com­mit­ment to hu­man rights is­sues and an op­por­tu­nity for the coun­try to get ac­quainted with the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in that field, Jar­al­lah noted.

On the visit of the UN of­fi­cials, he said that the For­eign Min­istry is spar­ing no ef­fort to en­sure that it is a fruit­ful one, where of­fi­cials from across the gov­ern­ment spec­trum, in ad­di­tion to in­de­pen­dent bod­ies, are ex­pected to meet with the UN con­tin­gent.—KUNA
