Kuwait’s new Emir vows not alter stance on Palestine

Kuwait’s new ruler Sunday pledged to remain constant with the country’s alignment with Palestinian cause amid decay in support for the Arab League member.
Emir Sheikh Nawaf Al Ahmad Al Sabah, reports say, made the remark, during a meeting with Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh, who visited Kuwait to offer condolences on the death of the late Emir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah.
Sheikh Nawaf said that he would follow the footsteps of his predecessor and offer solid support to Palestine and its people, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) reports.
The new ruler, appointed early week after the death of his half-brother Emir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah on Tuesday, also reportedly spoke to the head of the Hamas Political Bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, on Thursday and stressed that Kuwait will not alter its policies toward Palestinians and will remain committed to their cause.
The remarks come amid steady fall in the support of Palestinians by their brother Arab states. UAE and Bahrain last month became 3rd and 4th Arab countries after Egypt and Jordan to thaw ties with Israel.
US President Donald Trump who brokered normalization deals said several other Arab countries will follow suite.
