KUWAIT:

Min­is­ter of Awqaf and Is­lamic Af­fairs Mo­ham­mad Al-Jabri has af­firmed his keen­ness on main­tain­ing moder­a­tion and “com­bat­ing ex­trem­ism and thoughts of an­ni­hi­la­tion.” Min­is­ter Al-Jabri, the sole elected par­lia­ment mem­ber in the re­cently formed new cabi­net, made the as­ser­tion dur­ing a cer­e­mony mark­ing his as­sump­tion of the se­nior post.

The newly-as­signed min­is­ter af­firmed his keen­ness on main­tain­ing “moder­a­tion, his re­solve to fight rad­i­cal­ism and de­struc­tive thoughts; be­cause our re­li­gion is a re­li­gion of moder­a­tion,” in­di­cat­ing that schol­ars in the coun­try are sup­port­ive of this ap­proach. The State of Kuwait has re­peat­edly af­firmed that it ad­vo­cates Is­lam as a re­li­gion of moder­a­tion and peace­ful co-ex­is­tence among di­verse com­mu­ni­ties. Kuwait hosts com­mu­ni­ties from var­i­ous na­tions of di­verse faiths, with free­doms to prac­tice their be­liefs.

On his call to pray for the peo­ple of Aleppo, the min­is­ter replied, “this is the least we can of­fer to our stricken broth­ers in Aleppo” pray­ing to His Almighty to re­lieve them of their hard­ships. The State of Kuwait has urged the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil to shoul­der its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to­wards the tragic con­di­tions in Aleppo and called for an ir­reg­u­lar Arab meet­ing to look into the plight of the war-bat­tered res­i­dents of the Syr­ian city.

Sep­a­rately, the new Min­is­ter of Jus­tice, Min­is­ter of State for Na­tional Assem­bly Af­fairs Dr Faleh Al-Azb yes­ter­day urged per­son­nel at the Palace of Jus­tice to speed up le­gal and ju­di­cial trans­ac­tions. Min­is­ter Azb made the call for speed­ier per­for­mance of the tasks dur­ing a tour to var­i­ous sections of the Palace of Jus­tice and af­fil­i­ate build­ings, in an effort to pin point causes for work ob­struc­tion and de­lay. The min­is­ter dur­ing the in­spec­tion lis­tened to a num­ber of judges, at­tor­neys, prose­cu­tors and staff. —KUNA
