(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah will pay an official visit to Switzerland tomorrow, Tuesday, accompanied by an Arab delegation.
The delegation includes Arab League Secretary-General Nabil Al-Araby, Morocco Minister of Foreigner Affairs, representative of presidency of the League's Foreign Ministers' Council Salah Al-Din Mezwar and Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki.
The delegation is due to meet with a number of senior Swiss officials as Switzerland is the custodian of the Fourth Geneva Convention relating to the protection of civilians in time of war.
The visit aims to discuss convening an International Conference of the states that signed on the Convention in the light of suffering of unarmed Palestinian people in the war-ravaged Gaza Strip who have been reeling under the brutal Israeli aggression for more than a month.
The trip also seeks to make international community bear its responsibility to provide protection for the vulnerable people. The delegation will meet in this context President of the International Committee of the Red Cross Peter Maurer and the Head of UN Refugee Agency Antonio Guterres to discuss all issues related to humanitarian and relief to Palestinian people.
