CAIRO, Jan 16 — Kuwait’s First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said Thursday that laying a plan to mobilize an international support for the Arab draft at UNSC is necessary in order to end Israeli occupation and establish the Palestinian state.

Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled’s made the statements to KUNA prior to his departure for home following conclusion of the urgent Arab League meeting on foreign ministers level and the urgent ministerial meeting for the Arab Peace Initiative Committee.

“The ministerial council has decided to commission a ministerial committee, chaired by Kuwait with membership of Mauritania, Jordan, Egypt, Palestine, Morocco, and the Arab League Secretariat, in order to conduct necessary consultations and calls for mobilizing the support,” Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled said.

“This committee would study all ways to make such a draft a success at UNSC, especially since UNSC, with its current new members, has become more suitable for understanding the Palestinian cause,” added the Kuwaiti Foreign Minister.

On the crisis in Libya, he mentioned that the issue was on top of the meetings’ agendas, pointing out that the Committee has approved a draft on supporting legitimacy and establishing institutions in Libya, in addition to Arab States’ support to the Libyan people.

Meanwhile, the Arab League’s General Secretariat has prepared a study on the third article of the agendas concerning terrorism and anti-terrorism strategy, Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled noted, adding that the study was addressed to member-countries.

Measures regarding facing terrorism strategy are to be completed next February as a follow-up report is to be submitted during next ministerial meeting in March, he said.
