Dear brothers and majesties...
We are holding our summit in the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia and we hope our mission will end in success. It is my pleasure to thanks His Majesty the Custodian of the two holy mosques King Abdullah Bin Abdel Aziz Al Soud the president of summit and also I thank His Majesty Omar Hassan Al Bashir the president of the Republique of Sudan during his holding our last summit. This summit comes after circumstances and situations faced our Arabic states, we should move forward to solve our problems and issues by an objective and truthful soul.

The State of Kuwait always believes of the importance of the participator Arab group work, and we see the importance of focusing on the opposition of the economic and developmental challenges. And supporting the investment and projects of the infrastructures in Arabic states. An activate the collective and double Arabic agreements.

Dear brothers and Majesties,
Perhaps you share the suggestion with us the importance of holding an Arabic summit for specializing the developmental and economic matter in the Arabic states.

We condemned all terrorist acts, specifically those targeting the Iraqi holly sites as well as infrastructure installations, we call for Iraqi national unity and urged the Iraqis not to let sectarian differences split the nation apart.

Stability in Iraq can only be achieved when all Iraqi political parties take part, evenly and efficiently, in the political process.

This is the only way to uproot the heinous sectarian strife and achieve a lasting domestic peace.

We support Arab efforts aimed at restoring law and order to Iraq as laid down in previous Arab summit resolutions specifically holding a national reconciliation conference and supporting conferences of "Iraq’s neighbors which show solidarity by Iraq’s neighbors". Kuwait has always stood by Iraq in its hour of need and helped Iraqis overcome their day to day livelihood problems and would continue to do so in future.

We also commended the efforts that led to the formation of the Palestinian national unity government, specifically the efforts made by the custodian of the two holy mosques King Abdullah Bin Abdel Aziz Al Soud in convening the Makkah summit between the Palestinian president and prime minister.

We underlined the importance of supporting the Palestinian cabinet, in order to revive the Middle East peace process and enable besieged government to bridge the gap with the outside world, specifically the Arab world.

The Arab peace initiative , which was put forward in 2002 at the Beirut Arab summit and called for Arab Unity in facing up to economic challenges ahead , the initiative as an appropriate groundwork for a comprehensive and lasting regional peace . The initiative paved the way for the implementation of UN resolution and urged Arab leaders to use the initiative as a launching pad for all efforts aimed at resolving major Arab issues, specifically Arab issues.

We hope for political stability to prevail in Lebanon and urged Lebanese leaders to put national interest above all other considerations to enable Lebanon to regain its vital role for regional stability.

We call for an end to fratricidal strife in Somali and urged Somalis leaders to reach a political compromise putting national interest first and above other considerations. Kuwait was working hard to free the Middle East from weapons of mass destruction specifically nuclear weapons. We urged Israel to abide by the nuclear non- proliferation Treaty (NNPT) paving the way for regular checks to be maid by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of Israeli nuclear sites.

Kuwait supported the right of nations to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes with in the provisions of the NNPT. We call for proceeding with the dialogue between Iran and the IAEA in order to ease tensions while safeguarding Iran’s rights to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. We urged Arab leaders to stand as one against terrorism which targets.

In conclusion we wish good luck and success to the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia and to all participants and we call for putting political disputes aside in favor of sustained development.
