Kuwait: conflict zones futile ground for terrorist groups' operation

(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) RABAT, June 26 (KUNA) -- Kuwait has raised alarm about the grave ramifications of wars and conflicts on international security and stability.
Wars and conflicts were futile ground for rogue groups, Kuwait's Assistant Foreign Minister for Development and International Cooperation Ambassador Nasser Al-Subeeh warned in a speech at the Regional meeting of the Political Directors of the Global Coalition to defeat the so-called Islamic State (IS) group, kicked off Tuesday in the Moroccan city fo Skhirat.
He urged the coalition members to join efforts to confront these organizations, especially in the Syrian and Iraqi areas, by providing the necessary support for the development of these areas and the eradication of "terrorism".
In this regard, he lauded the contributions of the coalition member states at the Kuwait-hosted International Conference for the Reconstruction of Iraq. He expressed the hope that these contributions would be translated into projects and services, to help restore stability and not to allow terrorists to use people's sufferings to recruit militants and promote militancy.
He highlighted the international community moves to deal with the return of foreign fighters to home countries.
Al-Subeeh pointed out that Kuwait was tackling the file of returnees from judiciary and security angles.
Kuwait also gather as much information as possible about any returnee in cooperation with friendly countries, the International Criminal Police Organization and the relevant committees of the United Nations and the Security Council, he said.
He unveiled that Kuwait would host late this year, in coordination with the United Nations, the special international meeting "Review of the Madrid Guidelines", which focus on the mechanism of dealing with foreign terrorist returnees.
He reiterating Kuwait's eagerness to contribute any effort to retain security and achieve international peace.
Al-Subaih said that Kuwait is one of the active countries in the anti-IS coalition.
He reaffirmed Kuwait's commitment to implementing guiding principles adopted at the ministerial meeting of the coalition in Kuwait on February 13.
The anti-IS coalition meeting, which brought together a select group of the coalition member countries, was an opportunity for coalition partners to discuss the next steps to ensure a lasting defeat of the IS, as well as ways to speed up the collective approach to combat the global ambitions of this terrorist group.
It tackles priorities for the coalition's multiple lines of action, notably stabilization, foreign terrorist combatants, counter-terrorism funding and anti-radicalization messages. (end) myr.ibi
