Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah urged on Tuesday unity among the people to protect the country from internal and external conflicts.


In his address to the fourth ordinary session of the National Assembly's 15th legislative term, he called on them to cast away their differences and work together for a better future, reported the Kuwait news agency (KUNA)


He said that the region was passing through an exceptional and unprecedented phase with conflicts and instability in nearby countries.


As a result, the people of Kuwait must take into consideration the importance of national unity and solidarity to overcome any obstacle that may bring harm to the country, he stressed.


On the Gulf Cooperation Council dispute and the situations in some parts of the Arab world, Sheikh Sabah said the Gulf countries and Arab world must overcome differences and prioritize the interest of the people otherwise they meet an “ill fate” that had befallen other countries.


Moreover, he warned against the use of social media and other outlets to create discord and promote sectarianism.


He called on the National Assembly to take proper steps focusing on the development of Kuwait and its people in cooperation with the government, stressing that the executive and legislative branches were both established to serve the interest of the public.


Sheikh Sabah renewed his confidence in National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim and Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, wishing them success in their duties.
