The UN will provide its unconditional support to Kuwait within this sphere, said El-Seblani, adding that the Gulf state's inclusion of anticorruption measures within its development vision was the correct decision on its behalf.
Many tenets of Kuwait's development vision mirrors the ones in the UN Sustainable Development Goals of 2030, affirmed the official, saying that no nation could develop without uprooting the causes for corruption.


The UN official took the time to commend Kuwait for volunteering to host a regional training course for anticorruption in the Middle East, saying that this reflected Kuwaitis serious stance against corruption.
The seventh meeting for the UNCAC saw 1,600 participants from all around the world are taking part in the event.

The meeting will mainly touch on the link between corruption and violent extremism in addition to other related matters.
