(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Kuwait will have outstanding presence and participation in the currently-held 103rd International Labour Organization (ILO) Conference, said on Saturday Head of Kuwait's Permanent Mission to the UN office in Geneva Ambassador Jamal Al-Ghunaim.

"A senior delegation headed by Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al-Sabeeh will represent Kuwait in the conference," Al-Ghunaim told KUNA.

He pointed out that Al-Sabeeh, also minister of state for planning and development, will hold a coordinating meeting with labor ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member states on the sidelines of the conference.

"Al-Sabeeh will also address the conferees, on behalf of the GCC group, to clarify GCC stance and vision of the different labor issues," Al-Ghunaim said.

He added that the Kuwaiti delegation will also effectively partake in the different ILO committee meetings, planned during the days of the conference.

Al-Ghunaim underlined Kuwait's eagerness to have distinguished relations with the ILO.

Kuwait is committed to the highest standards in dealing with labor rights, he said.

He also noted that Kuwait is backing the ILO calls for ending forced labor across the globe.

Today there are nearly 21 million victims of forced labour in the world, he lamented.

The International Labour Conference kicked off May 28 and runs until 12 June and brings together worker, employer and government delegates from the ILO's 185 member States.
