Kuwait will continue with its efforts to solve the Gulf crisis as a sincere mediator “from inside the Gulf “, according to the country’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah.
Reading out a letter from the emir to the Kuwaiti parliament, Speaker of the National Assembly Marzouq al-Ghanim said Kuwait’s stance as a “real mediator from inside the Gulf concerned about resolving the crisis among the brothers and not a third party”.
The emir in his message said “upon that objective and sincere approach we will remain and proceed” to find a solution to the crisis that followed after the Saudi bloc imposed a blockade of Qatar.
The emir has reaffirmed the importance of “not being drifted emotionally regarding the crisis among brothers in the Gulf and halting any political or media abuse, either on the Gulf row or any other one”, the speaker said.
Sheikh Sabah is keen on taking decisions to protect the stability and security of Kuwait and he called upon MPs to seek measures aimed at protecting the country from harm.
Addressing a parliamentary consultation meeting attended by 42 MPs, al-Ghanim read the emir’s letter to the lawmakers on the developments in the region.
