For her part, Dr Hanan Hamdan, Director of UNHRC, extended on behalf of the delegation her gratitude and appreciation to HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and HH the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad for their pioneering role in serving the humanity. She also praised Kuwait's humanitarian role in proviing aid and services to refuges and expatriates.




Meanwhile, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) underlined recently the importance of cooperation with the General Administration of Customs (GAC) to assume their joint responsibility for taking the highest level of safety and security measures and to avoid a strike by customs inspectors at the Kuwait International Airport.

Mindful of these goals, the Ministry stressed that the Interior Ministry's General Administration of Airport Security in coordination with the GAC must make sure that customs workers, who enter the freight customs areas, must be from the categories stated in relative residency laws to help maintain the security and safety of this important facility and to avoid the entrance of any violators
