Millions of vulnerable people have been helped with the generosity of His Highness the Amir and that of the Kuwaiti people, said Director General for the International Organization for Migration (IOM) William Lacy Swing on Sunday.

"I came primarily just to express the gratitude of not only the International Organization for Migration but the millions of vulnerable people who has been helped with generosity of His Highness the Amir and that of the Kuwaiti people," Swing said in a statement after being received by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah earlier today.

"I was very honored to be received by His Highness the Amir of Kuwait today, it's the end of the series of meetings I've had. I've been to Kuwait more than any other country in the Gulf area, and he has always been generous in receiving me," Swing noted. "Whether it's Syria, Iraq, Yemen and other areas, I wanted to thank him for that. Explore with him whether there are other areas where we might be able to support the Kuwaiti government's priorities," he continued. "We talked a bit also about the state of the world right now the many armed conflicts that show no sign of solution in the short to medium terms. The need for a stronger leadership in the world and so forth. "I will say then to have me leave of him and say that my calls with him, my meetings with him, were among the most satisfying experiences that I've had since I took this position 10 years ago," he added.
