All quotes about Kuwait

Murtada Faisal

It's really hard because of the lack of electricity, at home electricity is not good. We use 60 per cent of electricity from generators.feedback

Murtada Faisal

We don't know what to do. Men can go to the pool here but what do we do with our women, elderly and our babies? Even the ACs in the car aren't working properly. It's over 53 degrees today.feedback

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani

We are open to dialogue to iron out all the pending issues, not only for the benefit of our peoples and governments, but also to spare our region the pointless efforts to dissipate our gains.feedback

Essam al-Marzouq

We are in the first two weeks of the extension period. It is too early to say now what I will do in November.feedback

Mohammad al-Mubarak al-Sabah

The government of the state of Kuwait decided to take actions in accordance with diplomatic norms and in abidance with the Vienna conventions with regards to its relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran.feedback

Heather Nauert

Based on his meetings, the secretary believes that getting the parties to talk directly to one another would be an important next step. We hope the parties will agree to do so and we will continue to support the emir of Kuwait in his mediation efforts.feedback

R.C. Hammond

We've had one round of exchanges and dialogue and didn't advance the ball. We will work with Kuwait and see if we can hash out a different strategy. Individually there are things in there that could work. This is a two-way street. There are no clean hands.feedback

Ahmed al-Kuwari

We will go to the streets and fight for him [Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani].feedback

Haya Alwaleed al-Thani

During the Kuwait invasion my relatives barricaded their windows and stayed inside. They are scared of that happening again.feedback

Hamidreza Taraghi

It's like Kuwait, when Saddam Hussein invaded it in 1990 – our enemy makes a move and weakens himself.feedback

Owen Jones

Thousands have died at the extremists’ hands. It is scandalous that Theresa May has not released a report into foreign funding. They export extremist ideology which menaces Britain’s national security. The hatred that is manufactured and disseminated within their kingdoms threatens the safety and indeed lives of everyone reading this article. From Saudi Arabia to Kuwait, they are key allies and partners of the British government, and the Tories are endeavouring to forge ever closer links with these despotic exporters of fanaticism. And now these same Tories are sitting on a report given to them last year which examines the foreign funding of extremists in the UK. After three murderous Islamist extremists attacks in the space of a few months, this is nothing short of a national scandal.feedback

Svein Richard Brandtzaeg

There's a recently completed container port in Qatar which we've begun using, and we also have shipments through Kuwait and Oman, solving this for the short term.feedback

Sabah al-Khalid al-Sabah

(Kuwait) affirms the readiness of the brothers in Qatar to understand the reality of the qualms and concerns of their brothers and to heed the noble endeavours to enhance security and stability.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

This is the biggest testimony to U.S. failure in the Gulf. (It) gives others the impression the U.S. does not know how to manage the relationship with its allies or is incapable.feedback

Mohammed al-Sada

Circumstances in the region shall not prevent the state of Qatar from honouring its international commitment of cutting its oil production.feedback

Donald J. Trump

In Mosul, American troops are supporting Kurds, Sunnis and Shias fighting together for their homeland. Qatar, which hosts the U.S. Central Command, is a crucial strategic partner. Our longstanding partnership with Kuwait and Bahrain continue to enhance security in the region.feedback

Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani

We are not ready to surrender, and will never be ready to surrender, the independence of our foreign policy.feedback

Mostefa Souag

All this talk about Jazeera interfering in other countries' affairs is nonsense. We don't interfere in anybody's business, we just report. If we bring (in) guests who are opposing certain governments, does that mean we are interfering in the countries' business? No. Al Jazeera's editorial policy is going to continue the same regardless of what happens with this event.feedback

Omar Saif Ghobash

We have all kinds of recordings taking place where they (Qatar) are coordinating with al Qaeda in Syria.feedback

Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani

He received a call from the emir of Kuwait asking him to postpone it in order to give time to solve the crisis.feedback

Dave Roberts

The key problem was that these comments simply voiced out loud what many have long understood as Qatar's true policy positions. [P]articularly under the leadership of the former Emir Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, Qatar sought to carve out a unique niche for itself and its policies, such as augmenting relations with Israel or Iran, and rejecting the wider consensus of the regional group of the monarchies, the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC).feedback

Anwar Gargash

After previous experiences with the brother state, we need a frame for the future that will consolidate the security and the stability of the region. We need to rebuild trust after broken pledges, we need a guaranteed roadmap.feedback

Sameen Mohsin

Beautiful antiterrorism Ramadan ad by @Zain. A poignant and important message!feedback

Hassan Rouhani

The countries of the region need more cooperation and consultations to resolve the crisis in the region and we are ready to cooperate in this field. In this direction we are ready for talks aimed at reaching a real agreement.feedback

Tarek Sultan

Today's settlement removes uncertainty for investors and lenders, ends costly litigation, and opens a pipeline of potential government and commercial contracting opportunities. The company can meet its obligations under the settlement without jeopardising its current investments or its future growth.feedback

Jose Angel Mendoza

We found the bird about a block away from the prison trying to fly over with a package, but due to the excess weight it could not accomplish its mission. This is a new case of criminal ingenuity.feedback

Jean-Marc Rickli

I would not be surprised to see an increase in hostilities in Syria and Yemen. Also, the IRGC might want to foster pro-Shi'a groups in Bahrain and some parts of Kuwait to regain power after the elections.feedback

Chase Strangio

It feels like a miracle. It's amazing to imagine her leaving prison and being able to negotiate her life and her gender on her own terms. Following her arrest, she was subjected to solitary both in Kuwait and at Quantico, where she was stripped naked every day and denied access to anything. She had to ask permission for toilet paper. We hear from people across the country in jails and state prisons about this routine denial of care, even in places that have updated their policies. Access to HIV medicine has improved over the years, but it's still something we see frequently denied in jails.feedback

Khalid al-Falih

There is consensus building, but it's not done yet. We are talking to all countries. We have not reached an agreement for sure, but the consensus is building.feedback

Mohammad bin Hamad al-Rumhy

The number of countries that are supporting the extension I think would be quite high, per centage-wise.feedback

Essam al-Marzouq

We have a noticeable increase in compliance from non-OPEC, which shows the importance of extending the agreement. Compliance from Russia is very good. Everyone will continue on the same level.feedback

Essam al-Marzouq

Russia is on board preliminarily ... Compliance from Russia is very good. Everyone will continue on the same level.feedback

Ammar Al Hakim

But we are with the principle of reducing the overall OPEC supply to lift prices.feedback

Ammar Al Hakim

Given these sensitive circumstances, it is the right of Iraq to hope for an exemption by the other OPEC member states and have an opportunity to increase its production.feedback

Rothna Begum

All of them said they were trying to escape abuse. I've talked to workers who said they had to figure out a way to escape, and scrambled off buildings to do so. What was shocking about this video is that the employer had filmed it from inside the flat -- while she [the worker] is asking for help. Even low- and middle-income families will have a domestic worker. They're considered to be incredibly cheap, and you can exploit them.feedback

Alexander Novak

For today, obviously, this is within the sphere of our questions. The dynamics are positive here, I believe.feedback

Jabar Ali al-Luaibi

The secretary-general of OPEC is making a comprehensive investigation, analysis, of the market ... he may recommend an extension of the declaration and this will be seen by the next OPEC meeting (in May). Any decisions taken unanimously by members of OPEC ... Iraq will be part of the decision and will not be deviating from this.feedback

Simon Quijano-Evans - Commerzbank

One reason is the lowest oil break-even prices that Kuwait faces versus peers plus a slightly more flexible peg.feedback

Eugen Weinberg - Commerzbank

Compliance within OPEC is less than 50 percent if you exclude Kuwait and Saudi Arabia who cannot shoulder the whole burden over the long-term. The export numbers are at the same level as last December which demonstrates that the oil production cut is having little effect on market levels.feedback

Mohammad Javad Zarif

The role of the emir of Kuwait in supporting positive neighbourly relations between countries in the region is worthy of praise.feedback

Sabah Khaled al-Sabah

It's necessary that the differing views and misunderstandings between the countries of the region should come to an end in a calm atmosphere and through frank dialogue.feedback

Sabah Khaled al-Sabah

We are partners in the region and we have many common interests and possibilities. Gulf states have a true desire that relations with Iran are normal and based on international law.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

There are many countries. You mentioned Iraq and Kuwait. There are eight to 10 other countries in my mind now whose officials have talked to us about this.feedback

Virendra Chauhan

Saudi Arabia and Kuwait are focusing their cuts on U.S. and European customers as they target excess inventories and protect market share in Asia. Southeast Asian demand is small when compared to North Asia.feedback

Matt Smith

Really, these guys have been going hell for leather here, pedal to the metal, before screeching to a halt as they try to reach compliance. It's the most transparent way we have to see if they're adhering to the production cuts, given they depend upon these exports for revenues. They would be the last thing to be cut.feedback

Salem Al Sabah

We have very deep economic, military and cultural ties; we've had tens of thousands of American troops in our country.feedback

Salem Al Sabah

I do not know President-elect Trump. I do not know any of his people. None of his people have contacted me.feedback

Salem Al Sabah

I thought would be exciting for our guests to see a new venue. It looks great. It looks cool. So let's do it.feedback

Mohamed Beji Caid Essebsi

Tunisia has an advanced infrastructure, and a competent and open economy, which is integrated in the global market. This qualifies it to become a real destination for investments and exports in the European, Arab, and African markets.feedback

Marzouq al-Ghanem

As I pointed out to all political blocs, progress or development must have a base and the base is political stability.feedback

Ibrahim Al-Hadban

MPs who were in the assembly did not object to these decisions. So, in my view, they were blamed and punished.feedback

Nasser al-Dawood

There is nothing that drives me to cast my vote. We boycotted the previous elections for a number of reasons. Those reasons are still valid ... our participation will only give legitimacy to this cat-and-mouse game between cabinet and parliament.feedback

Amal Abul

We want young men who can help turn Kuwait into a financial and commercial hub, and who can help give people their rights without the help of influential people.feedback

Ingo Speich

Of course Achleitner made mistakes, such as holding onto the old leadership.feedback

Dieter Hein - Fairesearch

During his tenure, the number of staff have risen, the costs have risen and litigation costs are at a record.feedback

Chen Jun

After due diligence, we realised the asset was not mature and suggested to shelve the purchase.feedback

Jamal Ja

We hope that by 2020 we can make 20 per cent of the electricity which will be needed to run KOC from alternative energy.feedback

Khalifa Hamada

Until the first half of this fiscal year at the end of September, the deficit reached around 3.6 billion dinars and (the full-year deficit) is expected to be lower than estimated in the budget due to the slight rise of oil prices.feedback

Khalifa Hamada

We will look at the economic feasibility and the cost on the country for the issuance, as it is very important to take this into consideration.feedback

Jasper Lawler - CMC Markets

It's becoming increasingly clear that Saudi Arabia, along with the UAE and Kuwait will have to shoulder most of the output cut for it to have any chance of happening.feedback

Abdulaziz Al Loughani

We are going to go bankrupt if we don't change. I think we have the courage not to be taken by our egos.feedback

Abdulaziz Al Loughani

After three years of working, we had 2,000 transactions a day. After four months of work, Carriage has 1,500 orders a day.feedback

Abdullah Al-Mutairi - Enertech

Kuwaitis are now very supportive of renewable and becoming very familiar with it. All Kuwaiti companies and individuals are working to achieve this target by 2030.feedback

Abdul Kadir Hussain

If you go down the list of Gulf Cooperation Council issuers, in terms of need and requirement to issue, at the top of the pile there's Saudi Arabia. At the bottom of the pile you have Kuwait and Dubai.feedback

Dima Jardaneh - Standard Chartered

The government has not mandated banks on the bond, which would suggest that they were targeting a later release post-the Saudi Arabia one.feedback

Kourosh Kian - GE Aviation

In putting out the fires in Kuwait, the firefighters used water pipes and pumped the water from the Persian Gulf to spray at the base of the fires.feedback

Humphrey Percy

An important component of KEH's strategy is to build out a financial services division that can develop a true bridge between investors in Kuwait and elsewhere in the Middle East, and financial markets in Europe, particularly in London. Having a significant stake in a prominent London securities house such as WH Ireland is an exciting next step of this strategy.feedback

Matt Smith

OPEC members, including Venezuela, Ecuador and Kuwait, are said to be behind this latest reincarnation. But just like previous endeavours, it seems doomed to fail, given key OPEC members (think: Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Iran) persist in their battle for market share, ramping up exports apace.feedback

Al-Khair National

A final agreement has not been reached between Al Khair and the buyer, Adeptio, for all of Al Khair's shares in Americana. Therefore, the two sides have agreed to end negotiations.feedback

Craig Erlam

With oil now trading at its highest level since early December and showing little sign of easing up, despite no deal being reached in Doha and the strike in Kuwait being resolved, I wonder whether what we're seeing here is partially a demand side story, with Chinese data having improved as of late, and partially an assumption that further supply disruptions are on the horizon.feedback

Brian Busch - Genscape

I think they definitely were upset with exactly how much production was starting to come out of North America and the U.S.feedback

Richard Scalone - TJM Brokerage

The predominant theme is risk on. We came into the year concerned about Chinese growth and an aggressive (Federal Reserve), and we've gotten nothing even remotely similar to where our fears were.feedback

Saif Mohammed al-Qahtani

We don't want to strike, we have no desire for it. We have been forced to do this. [We feel] as if we have been pushed towards this strike by third parties. We are just trying to keep what we already have, and we're not demanding anything extra.feedback

Peter Chatwell

It looks like the (Italy) announcement came as a surprise ... and now the market is preparing for that supply. We've also got all of these political factors building up ... and the sentiment is going to be towards spreads widening from here.feedback

Greg Priddy

In the lower-likelihood scenario that the strike drags on, the state oil company would probably call in foreign staff to support continued operations.feedback

Niels Christensen - Nordea Bank

It (Other OTC: ITGL - news) is quite amazing how oil prices have recovered from Monday's lows. That is shoring up risk appetite and pushing up commodity-linked currencies. As long as oil remains above $43 a barrel, we think commodity currencies will remain supported.feedback

John Kilduff - Again Capital

The Kuwait strike in particular is a major factor. It was a bolt out of the blue in terms of how much oil came off the market so quickly. Usually these things have a ramp down period but this seems to be able to flick a switch...It's supportive for the market for now.feedback

Jim Ritterbusch - Ritterbusch & Associates

While a few forecasters may be dusting off some old $20 WTI expectations as a result of the Doha outcome, we expect solid support in nearby WTI at the $35 mark.feedback

Matt Smith

The material loss in production from the Kuwait strike has helped the oil market forget about the farce from Doha.feedback

Daniel Yergin

We still expect one way or the other, the price looks like it will be at that $40 to $50 range in the second half of the year. With the freeze, it would have gotten there earlier ... there's a question about Kuwait, declining U.S. production. Declines elsewhere just because investment slowed down.feedback

Gary Ross

The failure is negative from the psychological point of view. It shows the inability of all sides to cooperate.feedback

Farhan al-Ajami

There are no negotiations between the unions and the government over the strike.feedback

Matt Smith

The comments out of Kuwait have encouraged the sell-off and it appears likely that a focus on weekly oil inventories will encourage prices lower.feedback

Nawal Al-Fuzaia - Opec

There are positive indications an agreement will be reached during this meeting … an initial agreement on freezing production.feedback

Mauro Moretti

This is Finmeccanica's largest ever commercial achievement.feedback

Nour Al Hammoury

Moreover, another development happened recently, which is seen as another challenge for the oil market. Iran promised to increase its oil exports by one million barrels once the sanctions are lifted, which will keep the supply higher again by another 1 million and keep downward pressure on oil, as well.feedback

Nour Al Hammoury

We hope. Major global banks have faced many scandals related to commodities and not only gold. The banks who were predicting the price of gold to reach above 2,000 USD/oz are the same banks who are predicting now that the price will fall below 1,000 USD/oz. Despite that, the major banks remain the biggest gold buyers, according to the latest report from the world gold council. In the meantime, the new pricing might give the market some confidence, especially if its transparent and this is what we will be watching over the coming period.feedback

Nour Al Hammoury

I believe that it's more of a political issue than economic. OPEC members could not find a solution so far. The issue is about how much they will cut and how the members will the cuts the agree on. It's clear that they could not find a solution until today. However the minister's comments could be a sign that they might not agree in the June meeting as well.feedback

Christopher Davidson

The invasion of Kuwait is still fresh in the memory of rulers in the Gulf and being invaded for your petrochemical wealth remains a nightmare. Qatar is in a tight spot between Saudi Arabia and Iran and its very survival rests on the west's guarantee. The thinking goes that if someone invades a country that has the highest skyscraper in London, then surely the UK should come to the rescue.feedback

Carsten Fritsch - Commerzbank

It is more fears that this might spread to places like Algeria, Kuwait or the United Arab Emirates.feedback

Fadi Ajaj

Of course there is panic going on right now, but my suggestion at this point is, if you are holding positions you are probably better off to hold on until it becomes much clearer. It's really hard to make an investment decision based on the news we are hearing in the past few days.feedback

David Cameron

The idea that we should expect small and democratic countries like Kuwait to be able to manufacture all their means of defence seems to me completely at odds with reality.feedback

Maha Barada

The rebels also made their pledge to the contact group to help them meet the needs of the civilians in the East of Libya. They said they would like to receive humanitarian aid in return for oil shipments.feedback

Barack Obama

Just as it restricts the rights of its own people, the Iranian government continues to prop up a dictator in Damascus and supports terrorist groups abroad. Time and again, it has failed to take the opportunity to demonstrate that its nuclear programme is peaceful, and to meet its obligations to the United Nations.feedback

Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani

The Security Council has failed to reach an effective position and so I think it would be better for the Arab countries themselves to get involved, in line with their national, humanitarian and military responsibilities.feedback

Mohammad Al Olaim

The problem that the prices are increasing now, we think, is not related to the demand and supply, so whatever you do, maybe, it is not going to effect, crucially, directly, the prices.feedback

Saleh Yemen

They have political parties in a way that Kuwait or Bahrain don't.feedback

Melissa Fleming - U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees

We have estimated that we will need $6.5 billion to help Syrians, Syrians who are internally displaced inside the country and Syrians who have been forced to flee outside the country.feedback
