EU says Kuwait initiator of donor conferences on Syria

BRUSSELS, The European Union Thursday heaped praise on Kuwait for all its help and assistance to the people of Syria.

“I want to thank Kuwait because it has been the initiator of this process of conferences to support to the people of Syria inside and outside the country and also for the very generous contribution it has given to the pledging conferences,” EU High Representative Federica Mogherini told Kuwait News Agency, KUNA, and Kuwait TV ahead of a meeting with the Kuwaiti Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah.

She praised Kuwait’s “political stance that it is having and keeping in a difficult region to support the UN led processes in the region and in particular today on Syria.” She also lauded Kuwait’s “excellent role it is trying to exercise to bridge positions and determine a more cooperative atmosphere in the entire region.” Mogherini together with the UN hosted Thursday the third Brussels Conference on “Supporting the Future of Syria and the region” on the ministerial level.
