Kuwait’s Emir has warned that the row between Qatar and some other Arab countries in the region could lead to “undesirable consequences.”
“It is difficult for us, the generation that built the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council 37 years ago, to see these disagreements between its members which may lead to undesirable consequences,” Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al Sabah said on Monday.
“I personally lived through the first building blocks of this council nearly four decades ago, so it is not easy for someone like me as a leader to stand silent without doing everything I can to bring brothers back together,” he added.
After Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates broke off their diplomatic relations with Qatar earlier this month, suspending all land, air and sea traffic with the monarchy.
Since then Kuwait has been playing the role of mediator to end the dispute.
Kuwait’s emir traveled to Qatar last week after his visits to Saudi Arabia and the UAE as part of his efforts in order to help mediate a solution to the diplomatic row among Arab countries of the region.
Iran has also called for dialogue among regional countries to resolve their problems, warning that the escalation of such rows might threaten the security of the region.
