January 2, 2019, 8:31 am

The Kuwaiti Cabinet on Monday commended the efforts of an ad hoc committee entrusted with checking the university documents of Kuwaiti citizens and residents alike.

This came during the cabinet's discussion of the committee's report on the recently raised issue of forged university documents at a customary weekly meeting held at Bayan Palace and presided over by Acting Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al­Hamad Al­Sabah.

The cabinet also listened to a briefing from Minister of Education and Higher Education Hamed Al­Azmy, who doubles as the head of the committee, Deputy Premier and Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Anas Al­Saleh said in a statement following the meeting.

Having checked a total 6050 certificates, the panel has sent a number of forged documents to the Public Prosecution as a prelude to legal action against those involved in the case, Al­Saleh said.

Also locally, the cabinet congratulated the newly appointed ministers, wishing them the best of luck in serving their respective country's national interests, he added. Internationally, the cabinet offered heartfelt condolences to UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan on the victims of a recent helicopter crash.

The Kuwaiti ministers also deplored a recent attack on the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which left a number of people dead or injured. They further voiced vehement condemnation of a tourist bus blast in Egypt's Giza Governorate.

In this regard, the cabinet resounded Kuwait's unwavering position based on decrying violence and terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, reiterating that it stands side by side with Libya and Egypt.
