March 8, 2018, 12:52 pm

Efforts exerted by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to prevent the escalation of the Gulf dispute were a success, Kuwaiti Deputy Foreign Minister Khalid Al-Jarallah said on Wednesday.

His Highness the Amir moved quick to mediate the feud due to his commitment to the Gulf Cooperation Council bloc's unity, added the Kuwaiti official.
Al-Jarallah added that the continuation of the stalemate on the affair "pains us on a daily basis." Regarding the Arab quartet's (Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt) recent statement on the matter, Al-Jarallah said he was appreciative and proud that the document presents a positive indicator on Kuwait's continuing role of mediation.

In response to a question whether the US planned to host Gulf leaders in a bid to resolve the dispute, he confirmed there were attempts, but that so far no invitations have been sent.

However, Al-Jarallah said several prominent Gulf figures would be shortly visiting the US, amid moves which could pave the way for the convening of the summit.

Regarding Yemen, he said Kuwait places the matter on its priorities list through its non-permanent Security Council status and after hosting three months of peace talks between Yemeni factions which nearly reached a breakthrough.

Kuwait remains keen to once more host the Yemenis for the signature of a reconciliation document agreed upon by the opposing factions, he affirmed.
