  • Description

    The Kuwait National Assembly held its final meeting for 1970 on Wednesday, December 30, under the chairmanship of Speaker Ahmad As-Sarhan, and in the presence of Prime Minister Crown Prince Shaikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber - who addressed the Assembly and spoke of the Arab-Israel conflict.

    First to address the Assembly was the Speaker, who said that Kuwait would continue to shoulder its responsibilities towards the Arab homeland and give its support of the Palestinian people in their struggle.

    He was followed by the Prime Minister and Crown Prince, who said that the Assembly was winding up the term to prepare for a new stage in its Parliamentary life. His speech, though, was primarily concerned with the Arab-Israeli conflict - because, he said, Kuwait was not far from the battlefields and had a battalion poised along the Suez canal. He went on to say that although three years had passed since the Israeli aggression, the "so called Middle East crisis" still remained unsolved and that Kuwait continued to reject all solutions on the Palestine issue that were not acceptable to Palestine itself. Then, before declaring the session closed, he stated that the Assembly shared his Governments condemnation of the bloody clashes which took place between brethren in Jordan.
