KUWAIT, Aug 27 (KUNA) -- Visiting UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres Sunday appreciated His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's leading humanitarian role, and efforts to contain the Gulf crisis.
Speaking during a meeting with His Highness the Amir, Guterres said it was an enormous honor and pleasure to be in Kuwait again and "very clearly pay tribute not only to what has been the humanitarian leadership I've witnessed in my position and that led my predecessor to appoint you as the Humanitarian Leader, but today it's much more than that."
Guterres also highly commended the crucial role and efforts by the State of Kuwait in all political and humanitarian issues.
"I consider Kuwait to be the voice of equilibrium, with dialogue and wisdom in the region. When I see the entire crisis, from Syria to Yemen to the new Gulf crisis, not to mention all the other places of crisis, your leadership has been the leadership of tolerance, dialogue and the bringing of people together," said Guterres.
He said Kuwait has "no agenda but peace, understanding, security, and this was what lead me during the beginning of the crisis in the Gulf to say that the United Nations policy is very simple; it is to support Kuwaiti mediation.
"We don't want to have protagonism, we recognize the leadership of Kuwait and we support Kuwait," the UN chief added. (Pick up previous)
