Kuwait has taken part regularly in the past five sessions of this conference, expressing its stances toward international developments. At the regional level, it has played a "wise mediation role to resolve disputes." The Kuwaiti envoy cautioned that threats against stability in the region would lead to a regional-global crisis, repercussions of which could not be assessed, thus Kuwait advocated dialogue and diplomacy as sole avenues for resolving disputes in the region.
The diplomatic approach at these levels is particularly advocated by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
