NEW YORK: The US is committed to the protection of Kuwait's security, safety, sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as the security of the Gulf region, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Monday. He made his statement following a GCC-US ministerial meeting held in New York on the sidelines of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly. During the meeting, Kuwait's Foreign Minister Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah presented a narrative on a recent verdict by the Iraqi Federal Supreme Court, which canceled the agreement on maritime navigation in Khor Abdullah, according to a press release from the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry. The agreement, ratified by parliaments of both Kuwait and Iraq in 2013, was lodged at the UN, the minister told the meeting, noting that the Iraqi court's ruling contained offending fallacies against the State of Kuwait. The GCC-US meeting dealt also with regional topics of common interest, and strategic partnership between the GCC and the US, according to the statement.
