Cairo, May 14 (BNA) : Kuwait's Minister of Information and Minister for Youth Affairs Mohammad Al-Jabri said that his country's hosting of "Capital of Arab Youth 2017-2018" event had been praised by everyone.
Al-Jabri made his remarks to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on the sidelines of the 62nd session of the Executive Office of the Council of Arab Ministers of Youth and Sports in Cairo.

Al-Jabri expressed his confidence in Egypt's capability of succeeding and exerting further efforts to host the "Capital of Arab Youth 2018-2019" after Cairo received the event's banner from Kuwait.
It is important to contribute in the success of youth-related programmes due to youngsters' efficiency in all communities, he said, noting a special ceremony is currently underway in Egypt to celebrate the event.
He said the 62nd session reviewed agendas of previous meetings of financial and technical committees, awaiting their approval by the 41st meeting of Council of Arab Ministers of Youth and Sports, slated for Monday at Arab League headquarters.
