(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Minister of Information, Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Sabah Salem Al-Humoud Al-Sabah said Monday that the United Nations has named Kuwait as an "international humanitarian center", and His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah as a "humanitarian leader".

The State of Kuwait, represented by His Highness the Amir, will be honored next September at the UN's headquarters in New York in an appreciation to Kuwait's significant humanitarian role, Sheikh Salman said in a press statement.

He pointed out that Kuwait will mark Tuesday the World Humanitarian Day which commemorates all people who have lost their lives in humanitarian service and celebrates the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the world.

Sheikh Salman also said that the ministry of information will devote all its abilities to celebrate Kuwait's honoring at the UN, especially since Kuwait's humanitarian efforts are significant in building and development, as well as in supporting scientific research and human investment that reached several human societies.

In this regard, the Minister lauded the efforts exerted by Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED), Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development (AFSED), Kuwait Foundation for Advancement of Science (KFAS), in addition to other relief and youth voluntary institutions and philanthropic works.

He also highlighted Kuwait efforts in assisting conflict-affected countries, particularly its early sensing of the Syrian crisis, for which it rushed to meet the UN's call to host first and second donors' conference to aid the Syrian people, adding at the same time that Kuwait was also at top of the countries that supported the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip lately.

Kuwait's supportive role of humanitarian and developmental work has contributed in bolstering its status in the international community, which always backed Kuwait in various circumstances, said Sheikh Salman.
