KUWAIT: The State of Kuwait has been continuing its mediation efforts aiming to contain the Gulf crisis “amongst brothers,” Deputy Foreign Ministers Khaled Al-Jarallah stressed on Sunday. “We are pinning big hopes on efforts by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad 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 of 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
