GENEVA, Sept 19 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait on Monday called on the Human
Rights Council to consider restoring Libya's membership in light of pledges
stated by the head of the Libyan Transitional Council delegation, Mohammed
Al-Ilaqi, at the council meeting today.
Talal Al-Mutairi, the advisor of the Kuwaiti permanent delegation in
Geneva, called in an address at the council session for continuing full
support for the Libyan people to help them build a modern state, based on laws
and justice, as well as boosting human rights that had been breached
throughout the era of the (ousted leader Col. Moammar) Gaddafi.
He praised the brave stance of the permanent Libyan mission in Geneva in
defense of the Libyan people in the face of injustice and tyranny, practised
by the toppled regime.
The State of Kuwait stresses on the sovereignty, independence and
territorial sanctity of Libya. It also expresses full solidarity with the
brotherly Libyan people.
Kuwait has also expressed deep appreciation for the efforts exerted by the
international commission that pondered human rights' status in Libya, and
hailed Tripoli's declaration to host international inspectors. (end)
