He indicated that Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled, alongside other Arab officials, managed to convey the Arab stance on the Palestinian cause and its importance within the domain of human rights.

The Arab delegation, headed by the Kuwaiti FM, discussed ith officials from the Swiss government and the Red Cross the importance of holding an international conference on the fourth Geneva convention on human rights, said Al-Ghunaim, noting that the main focus on such international event was to address the human rights violations committed by the occupying Israeli forces against the Palestinians.
