Kuwait's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Mansour Al-Otaibi hailed on Monday 19/11/2018 Egypt's role in stopping hostilities in the Gaza Strip.
Addressing a UN Security Council session on the recent Middle East developments, Otaibi expressed Kuwait's hope such efforts would lead to a sustainable ceasefire and the protection of civilians in the enclave.
The Charter of the United Nations did not prevent Israel from continuing its attacks on Gaza, the Kuwaiti diplomat said.
He renewed condemnation of targeting innocent civilians by any party and anywhere, blaming Israel for the violence and escalation.
Otaibi called on the UNSC to implement its resolutions related to the protection of Palestinian civilians.
He reaffirmed Kuwait's firm stance in calling for a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian cause in accordance with the relevant Security Council resolutions, the principle of land for peace, the road map and the Arab peace initiative.
