KUWAIT, Oct 17 (KUNA) -- The Secretary General of Kuwait's National Assembly Alam Al-Kandari reiterated Wednesday Kuwait's call for a UN resolution to criminalize defamation of religions.
In press statements, Al-Kandari said the recent anti-Islam movie and the violent incidents which it triggered around the world have highlighted the need for such an international legislation.
Kandari is heading Kuwait's parliamentary delegation to the International Inter-Parliamentary Union's 127th Assembly meeting to be held in the Canadian city of Quebec on October 18-26.
He urged all UN member states to back the draft resolution presented by the Muslim and Arab countries in this regard.
"This proposed resolution is meant to promote inter-faith dialogue, understanding and peaceful coexistence among followers of the different religions," he said. The Quebec meeting will elect the President and Vice-Presidents of the 127th Assembly.
The assembly agenda includes a special debate on citizenship, identity and linguistic and cultural diversity in a globalized world.
It will also discuss the role of parliament in safeguarding civilians' lives; fair trade and innovative financing mechanisms for sustainable development; and the use of media, including social media, to enhance citizen engagement and democracy. (end) kt.ibi KUNA 172044 Oct 12NNNN
