GCC summit offers hope to end dispute: Kuwaiti minister

CAIRO - The next Gulf Cooperation Council summit, to be held in Riyadh next month, may be an opportunity to end the rift within the group, Kuwait s deputy foreign minister was quoted as saying by state news agency KUNA. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and non-GCC member Egypt have imposed sanctions on GCC member Qatar accusing it of cozying up to their regional rival Iran and supporting terrorism. At last year s GCC summit, held in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain sent ministers or deputy prime ministers, rather than heads of state. Kuwait s deputy foreign minister, Khalid al-Jarallah, expressed optimism that this year s summit will see a high level of representation from all member states. This summit is a glimpse of hope to revive the efforts of containing the long-standing gulf dispute , al-Jarallah said. REUTERS
