Kuwait- Emir of Kuwait Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah said he is looking forward to overcoming the latest developments in the Gulf, remedying the situation and healing the rift through dialogue. He highlighted the deep-rooted historic ties, family relations, and common fate and interests that connect the GCC member states.

Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported the speech of Sheikh Sabah in the last ten days of Ramadan, who stressed that the latest developments make it inevitable to exert utmost effort to preserve the Gulf entity so that it can remain cohesive, embodying the expectations of its peoples.

Sheikh Sabah reiterated Kuwait’s solidarity with the international community against all forms of terrorism, hoping for realizing security and stability around the globe. He warned from the growing threat of terrorism worldwide that has been spreading under various slogans and names, constituting a threat to countries and communities, and innocent people.

The fears and risks require further caution and unity to maintain the security and safety of the country, he noted.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan approved last week the Turkish Parliament’s decision to deploy Turkish soldiers to Qatar – the arrival of Turkish forces to Doha comes two days after Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu’s visit to Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia in attempts to resolve the crisis.

A Saudi source asserted that the kingdom would not permit Turkey to establish military bases on its land. He added that the kingdom’s armed forces and military capabilities are in their best condition.
