Kuwait looks forward to formation of new gov’t in Iraq — Al-Jarallah

KUWAIT, Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah said Tuesday evening that Kuwait hopes that the brothers in Iraq will be able to form a new government as early as possible.

“The visit to Kuwait earlier today by Seyyed Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of the Iraqi Sadrist Movement, provided a chance for reviewing the situation in Iraq in the wake of the general elections,” he said at a “Ghabqa” (dinner banquet in Ramadan) at the Foreign Ministry.

“Sayyed Muqtada Al-Sadr, a prominent politician, is always welcome in Kuwait and his visit came in response to an invitation from His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah,” Al-Jarallah said, noting that His Highness the Amir received the Iraqi politician at Dasman Palace.

On the situation in Libya, Al-Jarallah voiced hope that the coming days would see positive developments that could lead to security and stability.

He also expressed hope that the GCC-US summit meeting would take place in September and contribute to turning over a new leaf in the history of the relations among the GCC member states.

Al-Jarallah expressed joy for the large number of dignitaries in attendance in the Ghabqa, hosted by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah. (
