Within the framework of the efforts exerted by the State of Kuwait in combating terrorism and drying up its finances, the Committee for the Implementation of Security Council Resolutions, under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations related to combating terrorism and preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, issued a decision on Monday listing a number of names and entities as terrorist groups.
This action was taken in partnership with the United States of America, “the co-chair of the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in addition to all members of the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center: the Kingdom of Bahrain, the State of Kuwait, the Sultanate of Oman, the State of Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates,” reports a local Arabic daily.
These measures are considered a continuation of the efforts taken by the center to target the financing of terrorism, and they also confirm the keenness of the State of Kuwait and the member states to deepen partnership with the United States of America to suppress the financing of terrorist groups that pose a threat to the interests and security of the member states of the center.
In implementation of Security Council Resolution No. 1373 (2001) issued under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations, the necessary measures will be taken in accordance with the Constitution of the State of Kuwait and its local laws and regulations through the concerned authorities in the country.
