SARAJEVO — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon lauded the positive role played by the state of Kuwait in enhancing world peace and security.
Upon meeting the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina Mohammad Fadhel Khalaf, Ki-moon praised Kuwait’s sense of responsibility toward achieving international and regional stability; this responsibility, he added, stemmed from “a wise leadership.” Ki-moon, who is currently visiting Bosnia, expressed his faith in Kuwait to continue serving global peace and human development. The Kuwaiti envoy thanked the UN top official and praised, in return, the UN body’s ongoing efforts in bringing stability to the Middle East region.
Ki-moon’s two-day visit to Bosnia has included meeting many senior officials and visiting a graveyard of Srebrenica genocide victims.
Meanwhile, the Arab group criticized the Security Council’s “inability or unwillingness” to put an end to the Israeli occupation of Arab land and reiterated Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ invitation to the Council members to visit Palestine and inspect for themselves the situation on the ground. — Agencies
