Abbas to visit Kuwait for conference on suffering of Palestinian children
Palestinian ministers, along with social affairs ministers from all Arab countries are expected to attend, as well as diplomatic officials and charities based across the world – including Kuwaiti charities and UN affiliated organisations.
