His Excellency Kuwait's Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah has reiterated that Kuwait will continue its efforts to end the Gulf crisis and support the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), according to Al Raya.
The Kuwaiti News Agency, according to Al Raya, quoted H.E. Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled as saying in a speech before the Kuwaiti National Assembly:
"Kuwait is committed to a firm foreign policy, committed to its principled principles, the foundations of which were laid by the late Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah." (Al Raya)
He also mentioned:
"We will continue the good endeavours to end the dispute that arose between the brothers in the Gulf, which weakened our unity and harmed our gains. We will continue to work to support the Cooperation Council for the Arab Gulf States and constructive interaction with its mechanisms as it is a framework that fulfills our interests and meets the aspirations of our peoples." (Al Raya)
After Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan meeting with US Secretary of State, he signalled that there may be progress being made towards ending the over 3-year-old diplomatic crisis started by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt against Qatar, based on a report by Al Jazeera.
In a virtual discussion that was held by the think tank - Washington Institute for Near East Policy - a few days ago, Prince Faisal had this to say:
“We are committed to finding a solution.
“We continue to be willing to engage with our Qatari brothers, and we hope that they are as committed to that engagement.
“But we do need to address the legitimate security concerns of the quartet and I think there is a path toward that” with a solution “in the relatively near future.”
“If we are able to find a path forward to address the legitimate security concerns … that drove us to take the decisions we took, that will be good news for the region.” (Al Jazeera)
