Kuwait con­tin­ues me­di­a­tion ef­forts to re­solve Gulf cri­sis: Deputy FM

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The State of Kuwait has been con­tin­u­ing its me­di­a­tion ef­forts aim­ing to con­tain the Gulf cri­sis “amongst broth­ers,” Deputy For­eign Min­is­ter Khaled AlJar­al­lah stressed on Sun­day. “We are pin­ning big hopes on ef­forts by His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah AlAh­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah in this mat­ter,” he said in a re­mark to re­porters.

Jar­al­lah, on the side­lines of Moroc­can Em­bassy’s cel­e­bra­tion on the Throne Day, said Morocco’s For­eign Min­is­ter vis­ited Kuwait last June to ex­press his coun­try’s sup­port for ef­forts by the State of Kuwait and His High­ness the Amir. Kuwait’s strate­gic re­la­tion­ship be­tween the GCC mem­ber states and Morocco re­quires such move, he said. He ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to broth­ers in Morocco for their ini­tia­tives and visit to the re­gion fac­ing such dif­fer­ences.

Jar­al­lah af­firmed the dis­tin­guished re­la­tions be­tween Morocco and GCC states, re­fer­ring to hon­or­able stances by Morocco sup­port­ing the Gulf. Such stances em­body the strate­gic part­ner­ship with Morocco, he said. There is con­tin­ued co­op­er­a­tion with Morocco on all lev­els, he said, re­fer­ring to com­mon co­or­di­na­tion and un­der­stand­ing be­tween the two coun­tries. The two sides have com­mon stances re­gard­ing re­gional and in­ter­na­tional is­sues, he stated.

The State of Kuwait and His High­ness the Amir have been mak­ing stren­u­ous ef­forts for two months to make closer views be­tween Saudi Ara­bia, the United Arab Emi­rates, Bahrain and Egypt on one hand, and Qatar on the other hand. His High­ness the Amir’s me­di­a­tion re­ceived over­whelm­ing sup­port from the Arab and West­ern coun­tries. — KUNA
