The European Union (EU) wants a swift de-escalation to the ongoing diplomatic crisis between Qatar and other Arab states, European Union (EU) foreign ministers said yesterday, stressing their support for mediation efforts by Kuwait, DPA said. “Foreign ministers gave a strong message of unity and determination of the European Union to back the Kuwaiti mediation efforts,” said EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini after the ministerial meeting. “They need all our support and we stand ready to help.”
The foreign ministers noted that resolving the crisis was “vital for the stability of the region.”
“We are ready to help, assist and accompany this mediation in all ways that might be requested,” Mogherini said, as reported by ABC News, citing AP. However, she added after chairing the talks that the problem must be resolved within the region and not by outside powers.
The crisis broke out when Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and other countries severed diplomatic ties and closed borders with Qatar two weeks ago.
