Kuwaiti Amir HH Shaikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah has delivered a speech at the Leaders’ Summit on the Global Refugee Crisis, hosted by US President on margins of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA).

He thanked President Barack Obama and other co-hosts of the summit for their efforts to lobby for galvanized global response to the refugee crisis and increased funding for the aid programmes, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

“This important summit sends a kind signal about a global interest in alleviating the suffering of 65 million refugees and migrants worldwide,” the Amir said, citing UN figures.

“We have to appreciate the countries that host huge numbers of refugees despite the mounting economic hardships and the strains put on their abilities to meet their humanitarian and development obligations,” he said.

He added “We realize the fact that the humanitarian crisis facing the world today requires concerted efforts by the international community to end the recurrent aspects of armed conflicts, bloodshed and destruction,” KUNA reported.
