(MENAFN - Arab Times) The security pact among Arab Gulf states is a continuation of the strategic cooperation amongst them and represents a step forward in the path towards a union, suggests a Kuwaiti journalist. In an interview on state TV Sunday evening, Khaled Aljanfawi said that this agreement ensures that the states of the Gulf Cooperation Council - Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates - work collectively according to their national legislations and international commitments.



The controversy surrounding this agreement in Kuwait is healthy and illustrates the tolerance, the high level of liberties and freedom of speech in the country. He warned of dangers if the controversy was to find its way to the public, underlining the need for the matter to be discussed in a rational, experienced and constitutional manner through democratic and constructive dialogue that aims to achieve the best interests of Kuwait and its people.



Earlier statements by National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim calling for patience in adopting the agreement and revising it thoroughly in order to ensure that it does not run counter to the constitution were commended by the journalist.



The pact, he said, ensures cooperation and coordination between the states on fighting organised crime, transnational crimes, cybercrime and money laundering. It also focuses on ensuring the security and stability of Gulf states, and does not limit personal liberties or freedom of speech. It carries positive and human aspects and serve the best interests of Gulf nationals, protecting them particularly during travel within the six states, he said. KFH managers donating blood Kuwait Finance House (KFH), the world's leading Islamic bank, organized a blood donation campaign in collaboration with the Central Blood Bank.



This step underlines KFH's keenness to take part in such events that are part of KFH's social responsibility. Many KFH employees and managers donated blood, in addition to the public which includes the famous Abdulwahab Al-Eisa and Abdullah Boftin. The campaign is considered to be a response to the repetitive requests made by the Central Blood Bank to donate blood. It also complements KFH's role in the health field which is highly significant. The campaign contributes in spreading awareness in the community and highlights the importance of blood donation as it is healthy and good deed
