KUWAIT: His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah AlAh­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah met yes­ter­day with the vis­it­ing Saudi Shura Coun­cil Speaker Sheikh Dr Ab­dul­lah AlSheikh and his ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion, with Na­tional As­sem­bly Speaker Mar­zouq Al-Ghanem at­tend­ing. The au­di­ence took place at the venue of a cer­e­mony or­ga­nized by the Kuwait Oil Com­pany (KOC). His High­ness the Amir then re­ceived His High­ness the Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah.

His High­ness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad hosted 2018 No­bel Peace Prize Lau­re­ate Na­dia Mu­rad, con­grat­u­lat­ing her on the award and com­mend­ing her hu­man­i­tar­ian role and ef­fort to fight war crimes. His High­ness the Amir fi­nally met the out­go­ing Ira­nian Am­bas­sador to Kuwait Ali Reza Enay­ati. The au­di­ences were at­tended by Min­is­ter of Amiri Di­wan Af­fairs Sheikh Ali Jar­rah Al-Sabah.

Mu­rad lauded His High­ness the Amir’s hu­man­i­tar­ian role, say­ing she needs much back­ing from Kuwait, and hu­man­i­tar­ian sup­port and ad­vice from His High­ness the Amir. She said in a state­ment fol­low­ing her meet­ing with His High­ness the Amir that she came to Kuwait in or­der to get more fa­mil­iar with His High­ness the Amir’s hu­man­i­tar­ian work. “His High­ness the Amir’s mes­sage to me is that I should for­get about the past and fo­cus on the fu­ture in­stead. His High­ness the Amir will back me as well as my hu­man­i­tar­ian work, and that’s what we re­ally need. We are proud of His High­ness the Amir as a Hu­man­i­tar­ian Leader,” she added.

Mu­rad elab­o­rated that she be­gan her hu­man­i­tar­ian mis­sion as a Yazidi vic­tim from Iraq, es­pe­cially be­fore the re­tak­ing of Sin­jar, lib­er­a­tion of vic­tims, dem­i­ning in Sin­jar and home-re­turn of Yazidis. She added that the dem­i­ning op­er­a­tion in Sin­jar has al­ready been car­ried out with the help of the French gov­ern­ment and the US Depart­ment of State. “But what we need and we are work­ing on now is the re­con­struc­tion of Sin­jar, which has been the worst-hit area in Iraq and its in­fra­struc­ture was de­stroyed, as Daesh (the so-called Is­lamic State) re­mained there for three years,” she noted.

She went on to say that all com­mu­ni­ties have re­turned home, but Yazidis, who are over 350,000 in num­ber, are still liv­ing at refugee camps due to the fact that there are no ba­sic ser­vices in Sin­jar. Ear­lier dur­ing the meet­ing with His High­ness the Amir, Mu­rad thanked Kuwait for host­ing an in­ter­na­tional re­con­struc­tion con­fer­ence on Iraq, call­ing on all Iraqi politi­cians and civil­ians to be proud of this mat­ter.
