Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah warned on Tuesday of the dangerous repercussions the regional crises will have on his country.
He therefore stressed the importance of preserving national unity, adding that he would not hesitate to take any decision in order to preserve Kuwait’s security and stability.
In a speech before a consultative National Assembly meeting, the Emir called on the MPs to realize the dangers of developments in the tumultuous region, underlining their severe political, economic and security repercussions.
He underscored national unity and “rejecting any sectarian, tribal or partisan divisions.”
He also stressed that any “political speech that incites hate and sectarian or racial divisions will be prohibited.”
“The lawmakers should serve as an example to the people and promote national rhetoric,” declared the Emir.
On the repercussions of the Gulf crisis, Sheikh Sabah called on the Kuwait MPs to remain neutral from the developments, urging them to avoid political and media disputes.
“Kuwait’s role as a real mediator in the Gulf means that it seeks a solution to the crisis among brothers, not becoming a third party among the two divided sides,” he continued.
In addition, he called on the lawmakers to cooperate in efforts to form a new cabinet after the government tendered its resignation to him last week.
