First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah affirmed on Friday that Kuwait would spare no effort for maintaining its "pre-emptive policy of moderation and balance."

Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled made the statement to KUNA and Kuwait Television after Kuwait won by 188 votes a non-permanent seat in the Security Council for 2019-2019. The minister said he was elated for winning that large number of votes out of the 192 ones.

Underlining Kuwait's international high status, the minister said Kuwait has won respect and confidence of the world.

In the name of Kuwait he expressed gratitude to the member states for their confidence in Kuwait and its policies, drawn up by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

"We have also sensed confidence of the international community in the State of Kuwait when his Highness the Amir was honored by the former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan designating His Highness as the Humanitarian Leader," he said.

The minister said Kuwait would coordinate with the member states to avert eruption of disputes and wars and resolve them through peaceful means.
