Kuwait's rejection of US Jerusalem move did not affect ties

(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) KUWAIT, Dec 27 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti-US relations have not been jeopardized by the Kuwaiti opposition to the US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel, Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah has affirmed.

Relations between the two countries are strategic and extend to partnership on various realms, Al-Jarallah told reporters Wednesday on the sidelines of a symposium at Saud Al-Nasser Al-Sabah Diplomatic Institute.

Kuwait has clarified its stance and conveyed its concerns to the American side, he noted. On December 6, US President Donald Trump recognized the occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and decided to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

On the same day, the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry expressed profound regret to the US decision. (end) sss.ibi
