KUWAIT, Kuwait’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said escalations in the region have “decreased” as a result of continuous diplomatic efforts and communication.

Kuwait is carefully watching efforts aimed at ensuring calm in the area, the deputy prime minister told reporters.

He described the regional impact of Iran’s intention to increase uranium enrichment as a “worrying matter,” urging this be resolved within the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The deputy prime minister went on to reiterate Kuwait’s condemnation of the “devastating and aggressive” attack, launched by Houthi militia on Abha Airport in southern Saudi Arabia.

The attack was dubbed a “dangerous escalation that undermines all efforts aimed at reaching a political solution” and a “blatant breach” of international norms.
