Kuwait's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammad Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said Tuesday Arab countries must unite in the face of security challenges while pushing forward economic development.
Sheikh Mohammad, speaking to KUNA following his arrival in Marrakech to participate in the March 11-14 Arab Interior Ministers' meeting, underlined Kuwait's support to every uniform Arab position that would address security challenges in the Arab region.
He said the magnitude of threats in the region required collaboration of all Arab countries in order to push forward economic development that would ultimately solve security challenges.
Sheikh Mohammad said the Arab Interior Ministers' meetings were always important to exchange views of a host of issues of mutual interest.
He said Morocco was playing a major role in cementing common Arab security action.
Sheikh Mohammad said he would discuss with his Arab counterparts means of bolstering security and stability in the Arab countries, as well as safeguarding safety of the Arab people.
The Kuwaiti official said Arab countries needed to double efforts in the face of rumors spread through the social media networks, as well as violent behavior, money laundering, counterfeiting, drugs, organized crime, and cyber crimes.
