The Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, stressed in a speech on Wednesday evening (5 May) the importance that his country remains committed to the democratic approach, and commits to meaningful dialogue.
Sheikh Nawaf warned that no one will be allowed to destabilise Kuwait's security and stability by spreading tendentious calls targeting national unity. The Emir also called his country to stand up to rumours on social media platforms and to investigate the whole truth.
"We are sticking to the democratic approach that we have accepted, moving away from the atmosphere of tension and everything that breeds division which slows down the pace of development in the country."
He added that co-operation between the authorities and the institution is the basis for any successful national action that achieves the development aspirations of the people. To achieve this, the Emir suggested that the young generation should benefit from scientific and educational opportunities.
Sheikh Nawaf was sworn in before the National Assembly following the death of his brother Prince Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah last year. He is tasked with ensuring political unity and eradicating corruption in a country that recently faced political gridlock and economic challenges.
