Kuwait has named for the first time an ambassador to Palestine in a gesture of unshakable support to the Palestinian cause.

Media reports, citing Palestine’s envoy to the Gulf country Rami Tahboub, indicate that Aziz al-Daihani has been appointed as Kuwait’s non-resident ambassador to Palestine.

The appointment came following talks between Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed and Jordan’s King Abdullah II, on Wednesday in Kuwait City.

The two leaders reportedly discussed “development in the Palestinian cause and the assertion of the Palestinians’ right to an independent state,” based on a two-state solution, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and ensuring the borders of June 4, 1967.

Kuwait is staunch proponent of the Palestinian cause and an arch critic of Israeli occupation policies that are viewed as plans to ruin Palestinians’ hope for a state of their own.

Marzouq Al-Ghanim, speaker of the Kuwaiti parliament, had called for international support for the Palestinians last August few days after Israeli forces brutalized Palestinians at Al-Aqsa Mosque on Eid Al-Adha.

Ghanim is well known for his staunch support for Palestinians. In 2017, he confronted an Israeli delegation during the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) conference held in Russia, over Israeli’s continued brutalization of Palestinians and raid on the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

“You should pack your bags and get out of the hall after you saw the reactions of the world’s honorable parliaments,” he said at the time.

“Get out of the hall right now if you have an atom of dignity … You occupier, child killers.”

The Kuwaiti official was welcomed as a hero back home for his reaction.
