Dr. Qourshah focused on the richness of the Arabic Civilization and Islam and highlighted many of their important social aspects that are deeply rooted in history and have had tremendous influence on other civilizations. He pointed the positive characteristics of Islam and urged Muslims around the world to bring about the noble heritage of Islam in areas such human rights, fair treatment of women, equality and respect between religions.

Walid Siam, Ambassador of Palestine, also attended along side Kuwaiti diplomats; Mr. Hamad Al-Mulla, Chargé d'affaires ad-interim, and Mr. Abdul-Aziz Al-Dalah, Third Secretary.
