The European Union welcomes the announcement by Kuwait's Foreign Minister Ahmad Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Friday that efforts aimed at resolving the crisis within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have been fruitful. The EU commends the role played by Kuwait, as well as by the US, in facilitating this statement. The EU continues to support Kuwait’s ongoing mediation efforts.

The settlement of the internal rift will allow the GCC to restore its unity and resume its important work. The EU remains ready to further strengthen its long-standing partnership with a reinvigorated GCC.
