US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson praised the role which Kuwait played ‘to diplomatically seek a resolution’ for the ongoing Gulf crisis, while US President Donald Trump lauded His Highness the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and his influential role in the Middle East region.
In statements reported by Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Saturday, Tillerson hailed the Kuwaiti mediation and its role in finding a diplomatic solution to the Gulf crisis.
Tillerson also welcomed Kuwait's recent commitments to several of ‘Trump's regional priorities,’ he noted, as Kuwait ‘responded to Trump's historic call for action’ during the Riyadh Summit to defeat the ISIS and prevent terrorism and violent extremism’.
For his part, US President Donald Trump thanked HH the Emir of Kuwait ‘for all that he is doing in the region,’ saying ‘there is a lot of things happening in the Middle East’.
Trump recalled his meeting with HH the Emir of Kuwait in September, saying ‘I met a man who is really helping us, really very strongly helping us in the Middle East’.
