Sheikh Sabah Ahmed Alsabah, the first deputy of the Kuwaiti Council of Ministers and the Minister of Foreign Affairs said in a statement, “Kuwait would be the last country to normalize relations with Israel.”

Alsabah said there is no cooperation between his country and Israel, as reported by some media outlets.

He added in response to a question by a Kuwaiti MP, “The reports published by an Israeli newspaper which suggested a Kuwaiti-Israeli collaboration is false. This collaboration never took place and will never happen.”

Alsabah added that the Late Kuwaiti Emir, Jabir Alsubah, said, “Kuwait will be the last country to normalize relations with Israel,” adding, “Kuwait will stick to this position.”

He noted that Kuwaiti visits to Palestine were part of the efforts of the Arab League to support the Palestinian Authority against Israeli violations, in collaboration with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which supervise Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound administratively.

He concluded that Kuwait is committed to the Arab position when there is an Israeli presence, that is to “maintain a minimum official presence.”
