Kuwait’s Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled al-Jarallah said on Friday that the country will continue to uphold its firm stance against normalizing relations with Israel, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
Referring to a group picture that was taken at the Warsaw conference in which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was also present, Al-Jarallah said: “Anybody would be mistaken if they imagined that the group picture… signal[s] a change in Kuwait’s firm stand.”
He added that Kuwait would be the last to normalize relations with Israel, after a fair and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue is realized, with the establishment of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Al-Jarallah noted that Kuwait’s participation in the conference was a result of the country’s eagerness to discuss solutions on Palestinian affairs, as well as due to its close ties to the conference’s hosts.
“Kuwait took part in Warsaw peace and security conference under joint invitation from the United States and the Republic of Poland with which Kuwait has close relations and allied itself in some issues,” he said.
He added that Kuwait’s principle stance was highly appreciated by “the Palestinian brothers.”
