ARAB LEAGUE CHIEF VOICES FULL SUPPORT TO KUWAIT’S MEDIATION TO END QATARI CRISIS

Arab League (AL) Secretary General, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, voiced full support to Kuwait's mediation in the Qatari crisis, AL spokesman, Mahmoud Afifi, said.

Gheit made the statement during his meeting with Kuwaiti First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Sabah, in Cairo, Afifi said in a press release.

Al-Sabah expressed Kuwait's support to Gheit and the pan-Arab organisation, especially amid the challenges facing the region in the current period, Afifi said.

The two also discussed the recent developments concerning the Palestinian cause, as well as, the situation in Yemen, Syria, Libya and Iraq, and also the financial crisis facing the Arab League.

Earlier Monday, Al Sabah held meetings respectively with Egyptian President, Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi and Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, to discuss the Qatari crisis and ways to boost bilateral ties.

Al-Sabah briefed Sisi on the role Kuwait plays, to maintain the unity of the Arabs at this very critical time, as the region is facing grave challenges.

Despite the mediation efforts exerted by Kuwait and major Western powers, led by the U.S., the month-long diplomatic standoff continues, between Qatar and the Saudi-led bloc.

Among the six Gulf Cooperation Council states, Oman and Kuwait, have not joined the anti-Qatar alliance.
