Qatar has appreciated the appeal made by the Emir of Kuwait HH Sheikh Sabah al Ahmad al Jaber al Sabah for de-escalation of the Gulf crisis in order to recover quickly from the damages caused by the crisis.
During his speech at the opening session of the Kuwaiti National Assembly, the emir said that the history and future generations of the Gulf and the Arabs will not forgive anyone who contributes to the crisis.
“GCC is a promising glimmer of hope in the darkness, a candlelight that illuminates the long tunnel, and a model to be followed in cooperation,” he said.
Meanwhile, Qatar’s Foreign Ministry pointed that Qatar strongly believes in the fairness of its position in the crisis and its adherence to dialogue based on mutual respect, principles and values.
“Qatar has always been in pursuit of unity in the Gulf, the achievement of the common Gulf goal and the fulfilment of all commitments to preserve the GCC,” the statement noted.
It added:”Despite the systematic media campaign targeting its symbols, government and people, and the unfair and illegal measures it has been subjected to during the past months, Qatar has proudly preserved the civilised and moral position of the Qatari people. This is in response to the call of the Emir of Kuwait and in line with the approach laid down by the Emir of Qatar HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani in his address to the people of Qatar on July 21, calling upon citizens, residents and all media in Qatar to avoid abusing Gulf symbols and stay away from the outdated tribal rifts that the siege countries are trying to promote.”
Kuwaiti emir stressed that the only aim of his mediation is to protect the Gulf House from collapsing.
