Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I would like to start by expressing gratitude for His Royal Highness Prince Faisal Bin Farhan Al Saud – Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for presiding this meeting, and also I would like to thank member states of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation for quickly responding to the call of the brotherly State of Palestine to hold this emergency meeting for the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation open members Acting Committee at the Foreign Ministers level to discuss the American vision for Peace. I would also like to express our thanks for H.H. Dr. Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen - Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the office of the Secretary-General for their exceptional preparation and organization of this session.

Your Highnesses and Excellences, 

We just listened to a valuable speech by H.H. Dr. Riad Al-Maliki – Minister of Foreign Affairs of Palestine, that compliments what he listened to from H.H. President Mahmoud Abbas two days ago at the Arab Ministerial Emergency Meeting held in Cairo, where he showcased the position of our brothers in Palestine towards the American vision for peace. The State of Kuwait appreciates all international efforts, including the American effort, towards finding a fair and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue.  As it is the main pivoting issue for the Islamic Nation. It is a tragic and painful issue that our Palestinian brothers has suffered for close to 72 years. We need to assert the main references and factors, including United Nations Security Council Resolutions (242, 338, 2334) and Islamic summits Resolutions where the latest Resolution in the matter was produced in the last 14th Islamic summit in Holy Mecca last month of Ramadan. In addition, to the latest product of the 46th Ministerial Council held in Abu Dhabi in the month of March 2019. These latest outcomes in the matter reaffirm the basis that the two Organizations were built on, which is the Arab Peace Initiative that was produced by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in the Special Session in Mecca 2005. All of these outcomes call for the establishment of an independent Palestinian State with borders of June 4th 1967.

Your Highness and Excellences, 

It is regrettable that after 51 years of the burning of the Al-Aqsa mosque and the establishment of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, we are still far from achieving the fundamental goals of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in supporting the struggle of the Palestinian people and enabling them in achieving their uncompromised right of self-determination and the establishment of a sovereign independent state with its capital of Holy Jerusalem.

In conclusion, the State of Kuwait completely supports all that is being offered by the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Crown Prince the Custodian of Palestine and the brotherly Palestinian people.
