Kuwait has pledged a total of 100 million dollars to support global efforts against the novel coronavirus, the country's Foreign Minister Ahmed Al-Nasser has said.
This includes 60 million dollars for the World Health Organisation and 40 million for the European Union, the minister told a virtual conference of donors for an anti-COVID 19 vaccine.
Al-Nasser called the coronavirus pandemic a "trans-border and continental" peril. The pandemic has not made a difference in its spread between advanced and developing countries, or between poor and rich countries," the minister said.
"Experience of confronting that virus has emphasised the pressing need to devote collective, joint work and unify efforts and visions to overcome it," he added.
