KUWAIT: Chairman of the parliament’s foreign affairs committee MP Kamel Al-Awadhi condemned the terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of 150 and injured around 200 others in France. Awadhi stressed that terrorism is blind and that it strikes many places worldwide regardless of religion, doctrine or state. He also stressed that nobody could claim that terrorism originates from certain countries, adding that Arab countries were the most countries that suffered from its impact. “Those attacks probably present an opportunity for the world to stand united  and face this black malicious terrorism,” he underlined.
