Sheikh Ali takes part in advisory board meets
ROME, Oct 13, (KUNA): Kuwait’s Ambassador to Italy Sheikh Ali Al-Khaled Al-Sabah praised on Friday the International Development Law Organization’s role in backing developing countries to meet their commitments towards international agreements.
The Kuwaiti diplomat made his remarks to KUNA while taking part in IDLO’s advisory board meetings with member-country representatives, in presence of ex-president of Ireland Mary Robinson.
He said the environmental factor is essential for attaining sustainable development and overcoming key challenges facing the international community to achieve peace, stability, and food security, pointing out is significance in eradicating famine and extreme poverty as well.
Kuwait is keen on addressing issues related to climate change and their deep fallouts such as causing direct and indirect disasters, including humanitarian, he said, affirming the Kuwaiti leadership’s support of IDLO’s role in boosting necessary foundations and principals to achieve development.
The Kuwaiti diplomat also pointed out his country’s active role inside IDLO, praising the organization’s continued cooperation with the GCC-member state that resulted recently in signing a three-decade partnership agreement aimed to enhance the Kuwaiti legislative infrastructure via training and qualifying national legal cadres.
During the meetings, Robinson, also former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, stressed importance of meeting environmental commitments as part of developing countries’ international agreements, including the Kyoto Protocol.
Failing to honor such commitments would hinder efforts to fight global warming and have negative effects on developing countries and their islands, she added.
