September 5, 2016, 1:40 pm

Kuwait is always cooperating with the UN to resolve international issues and exerting great efforts to support the role of women everywhere, said Advisor of Kuwaiti Cabinet's Women Affairs Committee Dr. Suaad Abdulwahab.

The statement was made Monday during a conference entitled "Women and Achieving Peace and Security," co-organized by the Arab League and the United Nations, held in Cairo.

Kuwait highly appreciates the joint League-UN efforts to bring peace to the Arab World, despite the extreme challenges facing the process, Abdulwahab, head of the Kuwaiti delegation and representative of the committee's Chairperson Sheikha Latifa Al-Fahad Al-Salem Al-Sabah noted.

The advisor meanwhile, called on the international community to join efforts in fighting terrorism, noting in this matter the impact of terrorism on the future of Arab women.

In 2014, Kuwait presented an initiative to ease the suffering of Arab women in war-torn areas. The initiative includes sending special teams to assess the conditions of these women and find solutions for their problems, she said.

Moreover, she hoped that both regional and international organizations would respond to the Kuwaiti initiative and make it a reality. Albdulwahab also stressed the importance of enabling women to play their role in developing societies by improving their leadership and decision-making skills.
