(MENAFN - Arab News) Kuwait: kuwait's justice and islamic affairs minister has resigned the local news service al-rai said on monday after a senior us official said he had called for jihad in syria and promoted the funding of terrorism.

last month nayef al-ajmi rejected the comments made in march by us treasury undersecretary david cohen as 'groundless and baseless" and was backed by the cabinet.

but on monday ajmi said the emir had accepted his resignation al-rai said. kuwaiti media reported last month that he had already offerd to resign once citing health reasons.



'i thank his highness the emir for accepting my resignation and for understanding my reasons" ajmi said according to an sms alert from al-rai which gave no further details.

attempts to reach ajmi were unsuccessful. he has given statements to the private news group on the topic before.

cohen said that ajmi had 'a history of promoting jihad in syria" and that his image had featured on fundraising posters for a financier of a syrian rebel group linked to al-qaeda — the nusra front.
