The State of Kuwait provides needed support as well as special attention to the Palestinian question, re-affirmed Ambassador al-Dihani in a statement to the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA.
The diplomat was speaking to KUNA on the sidelines of a meeting of the permanent delegates at the Arab League.
Al-Dihani, head of the Kuwaiti delegation at the envoys’ meeting, indicated that he agreed with the conferees on classifying the Palestinian issue as a prime topic on the agenda due to its strategic significance.
According to the diplomat, the Kuwaiti people are in distress due to the abusive acts against the Palestinians, which have also hampered the Middle East peace process.
