Kuwait, Jan. 10 (BNA): Kuwait on Monday has reaffirmed its solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia asserting that it will continue to stand alongside Riyadh, putting all resources at the disposal of the fight against "the forces of evil and deviation seeking to undermine security and stability in this brotherly country."

The renewed Kuwaiti stance was made during the weekly Cabinet session, during which the ministers examined a host of political issues at the Arab and international levels, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

In a statement read post the session, the cabinet lauded the Kingdom's firmness in facing and wiping off terrorism, noting that it has followed up on recent security incidents in the Kingdom and efforts of the authorities for safeguarding the country's security and stability.

Saudi Minister of Interior announced two days ago that two terrorists were killed and a Saudi policeman was wounded in a shootout in Al-Yasameen district in the north of the capital, Riyadh.

Riyadh declared that one of the two terrorists was a member of the so-called Islamic State who masterminded fabricating explosives, rigging and training suicide attackers, KUNA reported.
