Kuwait is continuing its efforts to end the Gulf rift, Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khalid al-Hamad al-Sabah said on Thursday, indicating hopes are brighter than before in the interest of all states of the Gulf Co-operation Council.

Speaking at a meeting with editors of Kuwaiti newspapers, the prime minister said Kuwaiti Amir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah continues to seek to mend the rift and find the basis for continuing the GCC march.

Kuwait is always striving to bring different parties together with a view to achieving any future agreement.

"I am sure that all Gulf states see the GCC march important for them, for the region and the world. This is what we should build on and use it as a common ground for moving ahead to bridge the gap," the prime minister said.

"Regrettably, we are now in the fourth year of the Gulf disagreement," he said, adding, "but attempts are still continuing and hopes are bigger than before. We used to move one step ahead and return two steps backward. But now if we move forward a step, it is followed by another step," in the interest of all states of the GCC.
