Kuwait Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah

A delegation from the Houthi rebels will board a Kuwaiti plane from Sanaa to Stockholm tomorrow Tuesday to participate in UN­sponsored Yemen talks in Sweden, Kuwait Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al­Jarallah said Monday.

Kuwait Ambassador to Yemen will accompany the Houthi delegation, noted Al­Jarallah who was speaking to reporters at a reception held by the Embassy of Japan to mark the Asian country’s national day.

Al­Jarallah hoped the talks would succeed and would pave way for a solution of the crisis in Yemen. Earlier today, visiting Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom touted the significant role played by Kuwait in resolving all regional causes, saying the world looks forward to Kuwait’s relevant efforts.

“Kuwait already plays a historic role in the region advocating for peaceful solutions, for dialogue, and contacts and I think that has become an even more important role as the world looks today and of course surrounded by big and powerful neighbors but still being able to keep up that objective of creating dialogue,” she said to reporters after meeting His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al­Ahmad Al­Jaber Al­Sabah.
