KUWAIT: The State of Kuwait is ready to continue efforts to achieve an agreement among the Yemeni parties, to put an end to the conflict in the country, said Kuwait’s Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah yesterday.
This came in Al-Jarallah’s reply to a reporter’s question on Kuwait’s vision towards the current situation in Yemen, as he emerged from the opening session of a meeting held by a panel on preventing the funding of the so-called Islamic State (IS) — under umbrella of the Global Coalition Against the IS.
UN Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmad is exerting efforts to end the crisis and he is optimistic over a possibility of reaching a solution to the conflict in Yemen, Jarallah said. The senior official affirmed that the region’s countries are also lavishing efforts to halt the bloody conflict.
Al-Jarallah denied that there are mediation efforts by Kuwait amongst Yemeni parties, emphasizing his country’s readiness to back all efforts to end the war there. Kuwait hosted the UN-brokered peace talks amongst Yemeni parties on April 21- August 6, as part of the international endeavors to end the Yemeni crisis.
