JEDDAH, April 28, (KUNA): Kuwaiti Minister of Justice and Minister of State for National Assembly Affairs Fahad Al-Afasi on Sunday was re-elected deputy chairman of the Executive Bureau of the Council of Arab Justice Ministers. This came during the 64th meeting of the office held in the Saudi city of Jeddah.
Addressing the meeting, the Kuwaiti minister said it is necessary for Arab countries to keep on legal and judicial cooperation especially following recent 'heinous terrorist' incidents in New Zealand and Sri Lanka. He reiterated Kuwait's support for all efforts exerted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to fight terrorism and apply justice to terrorist cells.
Al-Afasi argued that the scourge of terrorist is closely related to the discourse of hatred, intimidation and provocation against certain individuals or groups. In this context, the Kuwaiti minister pointed out an Arab draft legislation to prevent the discourse of hatred. The 64th meeting of the Executive Bureau of the Council of Arab Justice Ministers kicked off in Jeddah on Sunday, in the presence of the justice ministers of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon, Sudan and Tunisia
