Kuwait, the Arab country leading mediation efforts to resolve Qatar’s crisis, said on Sunday the Gulf country was “ready to understand” the concerns and bolster stability in the region.

Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said his country would not abandon mediation efforts until the crisis was resolved, the state-run KUNA news agency reported.

Qatari leaders are “willing to hold dialogue” resolve the crisis, the minister said.

Anwar Gargash, the UAE minister of state for foreign affairs, tweeted the Kuwaiti remarks and then added in a separate message: “Is this the beginning in which wisdom and reason prevail? I hope so.”

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt last week cut diplomatic relations and transport links with Qatar, saying the country must distance itself from Iran and stop funding Islamist groups. Qatar denies such charges and says the Saudis are seeking to dominate smaller neighbours.
