Kuwaiti emir praises Qatar’s role in advancing ‘joint Arab action’ Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah addressing the 24th Arab Summit in Doha yesterday.
12:59 AM


The Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah has said that HH the Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani’s chairmanship of the Arab summit will help advance Arab unity.
Addressing the Arab summit here yesterday, he called for restructuring the Arab League to improve its role at regional and international levels.
Sheikh Sabah said the Arab world was in need of summits with special topics like the economic and social development.
 “We need to think seriously about holding quality summits for our common action,”  he said.
“The situation in Syria is worsening and the chances of ending bloodshed are far, which forces us to urge the international community to live up to its responsibilities to stand by the Syrian people and end their ordeal,” he said.
The Emir of Kuwait added: “It is not reasonable nor acceptable that we and the international  community watch the daily massacres and destruction of life there, and only  issue statements of condemnation that, no matter how strong they are, will not  stop bloodshed and killing.”   
Sheikh Sabah expressed full support for the Syrian people in their struggle to achieve legitimate aspirations to freedom, dignity and democracy.
“We reaffirm that the Syrian people should achieve their legitimate demands for freedom, dignity and democracy,” he said.
The Syrian people’s “legitimate struggle” will continue “with our political and financial support in order to honour the urgent humanitarian needs of the Syrian people,” said the Emir of Kuwait.
Sheikh Sabah noted that Kuwait answered UN Secretary General Ban K-moon’s call and hosted a donors conference for the Syrian people in  January, during which donors pledged over $1.5bn target set by the UN to help the Syrian people in the first six months of this year.
Sheikh Sabah urged the donors to fulfill their pledges as soon as possible in order to honour pressing needs of the Syrian people.  
He said the Arab world should press UN Security Council and the Quartet to push forward the Middle East peace process and to force Israel to abide by relevant UN resolutions, halt Jewish settlements’ construction.
Sheikh Sabah also called upon Palestinians to unite ranks after Palestine’s UN status was upgraded to a non-member observer state.
He welcomed the progress in political process in Yemen and the launch of national dialogue in line with the GCC initiative.
Sheikh Sabah commended Bahrain’s initiative to establish an Arab Human Rights Tribunal that would improve the human rights situation in the Arab countries.
