Arab FMs meeting of special significance - Kuwait's FM
November 4, 2013, 9:25 am

Kuwait's Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah on Sunday stated that the extraordinary Arab foreign ministers' meeting was of particular significance at present time, coinciding with preparations for the Geneva-II conference for Syria.

The gathering witnessed lengthy and in-depth discussions regarding the Syrian crisis, namely the aspired political settlement that could be addressed at the Geneva-II conference and supporting the Syrian National Coalition for Revolutionary Forces in its quest to attain guarantees for holding it.

The ministers at the meeting expressed full support for taking part in the Geneva conference and urged "the coalition and the Syrian opposition" to take part in it according to certain terms that guarantee the Syrian people aspiration to set up an interim governing authority with full executive powers "through which the future of Syria can be drawn," he said in a statement to KUNA.

Arab concord toward the issue of participation in the conference will encourage the opposition to take part in it for it will mark a turning point in the file of the Syrian cause that "has bled the hearts and dragged on for more than two years and a half," the Kuwaiti minister added.

The ministers dealt with the humanitarian conditions suffered by the Syrian people, he said, stressing that this humanitarian tragedy is of prior concern for the Arab states, namely Kuwait.
He expressed gratitude to the ministers for welcoming HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's initiative of hosting the second donors conference for Syria, due in January 2014.

Some Arab countries host a large number of Syrian refugees and others give substantial aid to alleviate the people's suffering, he elaborated.
