UN, FAO officials laud Kuwait's aid to most vulnerable societies


Two UN officials have extolled Kuwait's continued humanitarian aid provided to Syrians and the most vulnerable societies in the Middle East region.

Amid the ongoing crisis of coronavirus (Covid-19), the international community is increasingly concerned about the virus' impact on people all over the world mainly in conflict areas like Syria which has been facing war for nearly a decade, UN Secretary General's Representative and Resident Coordinator to Kuwait Tareq Al-Sheikh said in a press statement on Thursday.

“Kuwait, as a Humanitarian Center, has been an example in terms of response to humanitarian urgent relief in Syria and other areas in the world during the last months,” he added.

He thanked Kuwait for its continued support to the Syrian cause and refugees as well as for its participation in the Fourth Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region, that was co-hosted by the European Union and the UN.
