Kuwait on Sunday celebrated the fourth anniversary of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah being named as a global ‘Humanitarian Leader’, and the country as a ‘Center for Humanitarian Action.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Tarek Al-Shaikh, United Nations Resident Coordinator and Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Kuwait, said: “I must emphasize that the actions and achievements of His Highness locally, regionally and globally are paramount. Over the years, he has accomplished much through his high-level diplomatic dialogue and development diplomacy by consolidating the values of respect for human rights, good-neighborliness, and the achievement of peace and security.

His Highness the Amir, the Knight of Diplomacy and Humanitarian Action, traveled the world to the east and west, to the north and south, in support of many of the values enshrined by the United Nations, such as ensuring relief for refugees and those displaced, and supporting people in times of need.

With determination and distinction, His Highness the Amir has served humanity as a patron and guardian of those affected by war, famine, and in time of natural disasters, not only in the Arab world but also across the world in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Forgetting the past injustices that it had suffered, Kuwait also came to the aid of Iraq in its time of need with a vision for a better future for all.

This year, with Kuwait's membership in the Security Council, we see Kuwait diplomacy helping countries affected by violations and wars, such as in Syria, Palestine and Yemen. Kuwait has also been adopting positions and views that are consistent with the country’s ethical policies set by the Humanitarian Leader and in line with the noble diplomacy of His Highness the Amir of the State of Kuwait.
