KUWAIT, Dec. 1 (KUNA) — Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah expressed optimism Sunday about a near healing of the Gulf rift and resolving differences among Arabian “Gulf brothers”.
There are positive prospects on turning the page of differences among Arabian Gulf brothers, Al-Jarallah told reporters Sunday on sidelines of a function held by the Romanian embassy in Kuwait to mark the national day.
He cited as examples of the positive developments: the participation of all Gulf states in the currently Qatar-hosted the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup, agreeing on holding the 40th GCC summit in Riyadh on December 10 and the planned ministerial meeting of the member states on December 9.
Kuwait pines high hopes on the upcoming summit to achieve Gulf peoples’ aspiration of security, stability and progress, he said.
Meanwhile, Al-Jarallah congratulated the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on taking over the presidency of the G20 on Sunday.
He voiced confidence in the success of the Kingdom on effectively leading the G20.
Earlier today, GCC Secretary General Abdulatif Al-Zayani stated that the GCC leaders would hold their 40th Summit on December 10, under chairmanship of Saudi King Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud.
Al-Zayani expressed his confidence that the 40th Summit would result in constructive decisions so as to boost the Gulf unity, and bolster ties, cooperation and integration amongst member states.
