The Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah appealed to leaders of Arab Gulf countries to achieve the aspirations of their peoples and put aside their differences in order to overcome critical regional challenges.
In his speech before the Emergency GCC Summit, which was carried by Kuwait news agency (KUNA), the Amir of Kuwait said that the region has for many years suffered wars and conflicts that have compounded pain and deepened wounds.
"Today, we are witnessing dangerous and accelerating developments in all its repercussions which threaten our security, and our Arab region is still suffering from unprecedented tension," he added.
The Kuwaiti Amir called on the GCC leaders to restore unity "of our ranks which enabled us over the past four decades to develop common Gulf action and confront many dangers and challenges."
He called for making it clear for the allies that escalation and tension in the region "will only lead to confrontation and destruction of our resources, wisdom should prevail and dialogue should be the only way to prevent our region wars we have long suffered from."
Qatar's Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani participated in the Emergency GCC Summit. He is the highest Qatari official to visit Saudi Arabia since a diplomatic row erupted between the neighbours two years ago.
Several reasons can be attributed to Qatar's participation in the Makkah summits, a political analyst said, adding that the most important was Doha's keen desire to see a peaceful region.
