EU’s Mogherini Supports Kuwait’s Efforts to Resolve Gulf Crisis - Statement

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini on Sunday reiterated EU support for Kuwait’s role of a mediator in the crisis with Qatar, stressing the need to find a peaceful solution for the situation, a statement released by the European External Action Service (EEAS) said.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Mogherini arrived in Kuwait on Sunday to meet with the country’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah.

"The High Representative paid tribute to the relentless mediation efforts undertaken by Kuwait with the personal involvement of His Highness the Emir to find a solution to the current political crisis in the Gulf and reiterated the EU's continued support to Kuwait in this endeavour. The High Representative underlined that the current situation should be resolved through dialogue and without delay. She called on all the parties to enter into negotiations to agree clear principles and a roadmap for a swift resolution of the crisis,’ the EEAS statement said.

Mogherini stressed that the European Union would be ready to support the dialogue and to assist in implementing a plan to resolve the crisis, the statement added.

Mogherini’s visit to Kuwait comes as part of the efforts to settle the diplomatic row between Qatar and four Arab.

In June, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt broke off diplomatic relations with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs. Kuwait, acting as a mediator in the crisis, handed over to Doha the ultimatum of the four Arab states with 13 demands, which Doha refused to comply with.
