A collective effort both regionally and internationally will better serve the purpose of combating terrorism, denying it from obtaining any financial support, gains, or footing, said a Kuwaiti official Friday.

Speaking to KUNA on the sideline of the “No Money for Terror” Ministerial Conference on Counter-Terrorism Financing, Kuwait’s Assistant Foreign Minister for Development Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Al-Sabeeh affirmed the importance of partaking in such international events.




The State of Kuwait continues to be an effective player alongside international partners in efforts to combat terrorism, Al-Sabeeh said.

“Terrorism is a phenomenon that is creating great tension globally due to its unpredictable nature,” stated Al-Sabeeh who stressed that Kuwait was keen on a national policy that was in line with international laws and Chapter VII of the UN charter on action with respect to threats and breaching of peace as well as acts of aggression.

The Kuwaiti cabinet had tasked the Foreign Ministry to implement the state’s anti-terrorism efforts and plans in coordination with countries in the region and partners around the globe, indicated Al-Sabeeh.

He added that Kuwait is a key player in the Global Coalition against Daesh, or the so-called Islamic State (IS), co-heading one of the groups within this international response team.

The Foreign Ministry official said that Kuwait was also a key player in the Saudi-based Terrorist Financing Targeting Center (TFTC), an initiative between the GCC countries and the US.

Al-Sabeeh revealed that Kuwait was working hard to meet the standards of the States of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) within combating money laundering and terrorism financing.

In regards to Kuwait’s tenure in the UNSC as a non-permanent member, which ends next month, Al-Sabeeh said that his country was very keen on implementing Security Council resolutions connected with anti-terrorism and other issues of paramount importance such as protecting human rights worldwide.

The “No Money for Terror” conference concludes today with three sessions discussing the emerging technologies and terror financing risk,

the public-private partnerships against terrorism financing, and the prevention of the exploitation of non-profit organizations for terrorist purposes.



Closing remarks will be delivered by the Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton followed by the chair’s final statement.
