Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE - — KUNA

His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah re­ceived yes­ter­day at Bayan Palace Eu­ro­pean Union’s for­eign pol­icy chief Fed­er­ica Mogherini, on the oc­ca­sion of her and del­e­ga­tion’s visit to the coun­try. She was es­corted by First Deputy Pre­mier and For­eign Min­is­ter Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled AlHa­mad Al-Sabah.

The re­cep­tion was at­tended by Amiri Di­wan Ad­vi­sor Mo­ham­mad Dhaifal­lah Sharar and State Min­is­ter for Cab­i­net Af­fairs and Act­ing Min­is­ter of In­for­ma­tion Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Al-Ab­dul­lah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, as well as Deputy For­eign Min­is­ter Khaled Al-Jar­al­lah.

Later, First Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and For­eign Min­is­ter Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Ha­mad AlSabah re­ceived Mogherini, and the two dis­cussed re­gional and in­ter­na­tional af­fairs, ac­cord­ing to a min­istry state­ment. Sheikh Sabah AlKhaled praised the dis­tin­guished re­la­tion­ship be­tween the EU and Kuwait, along with re­la­tions be­tween the Eu­ro­pean bloc and the Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil.

Mogherini is in Kuwait to ex­press EU sup­port of me­di­a­tion ef­forts as­sumed by His High­ness the Amir to find so­lu­tion to the Gulf cri­sis. “Kuwait is the me­di­a­tor that we sup­port and ac­com­pany and with whom we are con­stantly in touch,” she told a press con­fer­ence last week. Kuwait’s me­di­a­tion ef­forts emerged as Saudi Ara­bia, the United Arab Emi­rates, Bahrain and Egypt had cut their ties with Qatar. Ear­lier yes­ter­day, His High­ness the Amir re­ceived Na­tional Assem­bly Speaker Mar­zouq Al-Ghanem. His High­ness also re­ceived His High­ness the Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Jaber AlMubarak Al-Ha­mad Al-Sabah. His High­ness then re­ceived Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled.
