GENEVA: The UAE's representative to the United Nations and other international organisations in Geneva, Ambassador Obaid Salem Al Zaabi, has praised Kuwait's human rights record.

Addressing the 21st session of Human Rights Council on review of Kuwait's national report before the Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review, the UAE envoy referred to the measures taken by the Kuwaiti government recently regarding the legislation and procedures on women's rights, a development plan to promote social and cultural care for children to develop their talents and abilities, in addition to the establishment of a court for the family and a centre for reconciliation.

He also spoke about the issuance of Law No. 42 of 2014 pertaining to the protection of the environment and maintaining the ecosystem balance.

Al Zaabi noted that Kuwait exerts huge humanitarian efforts as the foreign aid constitutes an important incentive for the development of economic, social and cultural rights of the beneficiary countries.

The event was attended by Kuwaiti Minister of Social Affairs and Labour, Hind Al Subaih, and the accompanying delegation. - Emirates News Agency, WAM -
