US envoy ‘backs’ Kuwait mediation

Lawrence R. Silverman

THE United States supports and highly values Kuwait’s efforts to mediate the dispute among Qatar and Saudi Arabia, says a statement released by US Ambassador Lawrence Silverman.

We share the view that there is a strong need to resolve this dispute — as soon as possible — through diplomatic dialogue. As the United States continues to engage in the matter, we urge the countries involved to remain open to negotiation and calls on all parties to exercise restraint to create space for a fair resolution of the dispute, the statement added.

The United States believes we and our allies and partners are strongest when we work together toward a single, common goal; and that goal is stopping terrorism and confronting extremism. The United States will continue to stay in close contact with all parties and support the mediation efforts of His Highness the Amir of Kuwait, the statement concludes.
