Kuwaiti National Assembly speaker, Marzouq Al-Ghanim, announced on Friday that recent developments require a unified stance regarding the political leadership, while the United Arab Emirates (UAE) called for prioritising practicality and wisdom, following the assassination of Qassem Soleimani.


Al-Ghanim posted on his Twitter account:

“The rapid developments, which have taken place lately, are very alarming, and requires a strong and real social cohesion, away from emotional reactions, tension and irresponsible actions, at the expense of Kuwait’s national interest.”

He added:

“As Kuwaitis, we have been through the most difficult situations, and we have always managed to survive hardships thanks to our sense of solidarity, tolerance of our differences, and acting with long-term vision regarding the future of our country and our children.”

The UAE minister of state for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, called for prioritising political solutions over confrontation and escalation.

Gargash posted on Twitter:

“In light of the rapid regional developments, all parties should prioritise wisdom and poise, and focus on finding political solutions instead of engaging in confrontations and escalate the situation.”

He continued in the same tweet:

“The issues facing the region are complex and cumulative, due to a trust crisis between the concerned parties. Handling the matters rationally requires a calm and emotion-free approach.”

The official Iraqi television quoted a source from the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF) media, at dawn on Friday, stating that Major General Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force, and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, deputy head of the PMF, were killed in an air raid, which targeted their vehicle on the Baghdad Airport Road.
