President of the International Police Sports Union (USIP) Sheik Nawaf Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah, Crown Prince of Kuwait, has met His Serene Highness at the Prince’s Palace in Monaco to discuss the Unions’ social projects in Ethiopia and Brazil involving judo and taekwondo. The Sheikh is working on other projects to further a new vision of the USIP, he told the Prince.
Sheik Ahmed has also promised that USIP will become more closely involved with the work of the Peace and Sport organisation, the ongoing initiative of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation that seeks to promote peace through sport worldwide.
USIP was founded in May 1990 in Paris with 43 member countries. With the slogan “Sport to Serve and Protect” the union is recognised by the International Olympic Committee, of which Prince Albert is a prominent member.
