'Although Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states concur on many policies, such as Syrian government being admitted back into the Arab world, some issues remain unresolved within the council as Kuwait is apparently not following in the footsteps of others to normalize diplomatic ties with the Israeli regime.
According to a commentary published by the US-based al-Monitor media site, Kuwaiti officials are not on board with their GCC counterparts on establishment of relations with the Tel Aviv regime.
It noted that Kuwait threw its backing behind Lebanon at the UN Security Council on December 19, 2018, saying the Israeli military’s operation to block what it claims are tunnels the Hezbollah resistance movement has dug into the occupied territories are in violation of Lebanese sovereignty.
“Lebanon has been living for years with Israeli violations. Israel has tried to exaggerate this incident militarily, and in the media,” Kuwaiti Ambassador Mansour Ayyad al-Otaibi asid at the time.
Otaibi then condemned "Israeli violations against Lebanese sovereignty, in land, air and sea,” stressing that efforts by Hezbollah to counter Israel are “legitimate” resistance and not terrorism.
The Kuwaiti government even considered opening an embassy in Palestine last year as part of attempts to strengthen its diplomatic presence in the occupied territories.'
