Kuwait is dedicated to its humanitarian and relief efforts, as per orders of His Highness the Amir, Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah said on Wednesday.
Al-Jarallah made these remarks in a statement to the press after participating in a seminar on post-traumatic disorder faced by humanitarian workers, co-organized by the Foreign Ministry and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
Addressing a question over whether Kuwait's contributions to humanitarian efforts has diminished due to plummeting oil prices, he said that "these circumstances have been thrust upon the entire world."
Moreover, the Deputy Foreign Minister pinpointed some of Kuwait's most notable contributions to humanitarian needs, including the fourth humanitarian donor's conference for Syria and other similar events.
Speaking on Kuwait's unwavering commitment to humanitarian efforts, he said that the country stands ready to work with the UN, adding that the Foreign Ministry is working on a program designed to ramp up humanitarian work, which is progressing very well.
On the fourth Arab-African summit scheduled to take place in Equatorial Guinea next month, he said the scope of Arab-African cooperation is "broad" and that Kuwait has provided the African continent with copious amounts of aid.
In November 2013, Kuwait hosted the third Arab-African summit with participation of delegations representing 71 nations, in addition to regional and international organizations.
