Hossam Zaki reaffirms League’s support for Kuwaiti initiative to resolve Lebanon, Gulf crisis

The League of Arab States’ Assistant Secretary-General, Ambassador Hossam Zaki, reaffirmed the League’s support for the Kuwaiti initiative to resolve the crisis between Lebanon and the Arab Gulf states, which was proposed by Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Ahmed Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Sabah last January, and Kuwait received a response from the Lebanese side.

He hoped, in a statement to the office of the Egyptian “Middle East News Agency” in Lebanon, that “things will improve and that the Arab League understands the principles of the Kuwaiti initiative and has communicated with the Kuwaiti and Lebanese sides in an effort to overcome the dispute and mobilize the Arab ranks to support Lebanon, which is an essential pillar in the Arab work system.”

“The Arab League is closely monitoring the situation in Lebanon, as well as its determination to hold parliamentary elections on the scheduled date of May next year,” Zaki concluded.
