Al Taqi delivering his speech - KUNA

Kuwait has urged the international community to avoid linking between terror and any religion and to step up efforts to promote tolerance.

“Kuwait calls for concerted efforts to create a united front to fight terrorism and to boost the value of tolerance and peaceful coexistence between various civilizations,” Mohammad Al Taqi, a member of Kuwait’s permanent delegation at the UN, said. “We also call for setting out strict rules to punish anyone who disparages heavenly religions or denigrates religious leaders and sanctities,” he said in his speech at a United Nations General Assembly legal committee on international efforts against terrorism.

Al Taqi ruled out the existence a link between terrorism and religions and cautioned against the use of double standards in the fight against terrorism.

He said that Kuwait was keen on spreading noble human values among peoples and religions and backing moderation as well as tackling the root causes of terrorism, especially those related to economic, social and political conditions.

The Kuwaiti diplomat said that his country was genuinely interested in reinforcing international cooperation in the fight against terrorism through coordination with regional and international security agencies, Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

Al Taqi reiterated Kuwait’s condemnation of all forms of terrorism regardless of its motives, stressing that it was a criminal act that could not be justified or condoned by any religion.
