NOUAKSCHOTT, 25th July, 2016 (WAM) — Critical conditions, hazardous events and accelerating changes continue to undermine stability of the region and waste time and efforts at the expense of development, and realisation peoples’ expectations in the Arab countries, His Highness the Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah of Kuwait has stressed.

Al-Sabah made the statement to the opening session of the 27th Arab Summit that kicked off in Mauritania’s capital of Nouakschott on Monday, according to Kuwait News Agency, KUNA,.

They have also added fresh and dangerous dimensions to the challenges facing the joint Arab action, His Highness the Emir said.

The Emir said that the situation in Syria is getting graver and the volume of destruction, killing and homelessness is doubling, together with suffering of the “Syrian brothers.” The Amir referred to the efforts to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people.

Kuwait has hosted the First, Second and Third International Humanitarian Pledging Conference for Syria, and co-chaired the fourth one, the Emir said.

The humanitarian crisis in Syria is aggravating as the international community is watching and has, unfortunately, failed to conclude a political solution to end the suffering, raise Syrians’ hopes, and in the meantime contribute to rid the world of the evils of terrorism that has come to pose a threat to the world’s stability and has doubled victims, the Emir said.
