Speaking to KUNA, Kuwait Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs as well as a college-level professor Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Qahtan said that it was important for officials and leading figures in society to promote notions of tolerance and understanding.

On his part, Kuwait University (KU) Professor, Dr. Abdullah Al-Ajmi said that his country's experience countering terrorism and extremism could be considered as a model for other nations to follow, pointing out that a regional and international center for moderation was opened in Kuwait to spread these good ideals.
