Kuwait ready to host GCC Summit

Kuwait: “Kuwait is ready to host the upcoming Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) summit next December,” Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah has said, hoping the high-level meeting would be held on time.

“There are no contacts with the leaders of the GCC about convening the summit, but naturally we are ready for it and hope it will convene on time,” Al-Jarallah told reporters on side-lines of a reception held by the German Embassy marking the European country’s national day, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Tuesday.

Asked about Kuwait’s mediation to solve the Qatari dispute, Al-Jarallah said “the mediation by Kuwait is ongoing and will continue until we see an end to this dispute.” Meanwhile, he described Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz’s upcoming visit to Russia as “historic and important. “This is the first visit by a Saudi King to Russia,” he said, and it would benefit security of the region, KUNA reported.
