(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The State of Kuwait has renewed its support for the 2139 (2014) United Nations Resolution on Syria, which essentially calls on parties of the conflict to allow safe access for humanitarian agencies to deliver aid to stranded civilians



Kuwait's Permanent Delegate at the UN Ambassador Mansour Ayyad Al-Otaibi, speaking during a session of the UN General Assembly, late on Friday, cautioned that future of the region and Syria is at stake unless the international community reaches a political settlement to the ongoing crisis

The session was held to examine results of the international efforts to resolve the Syrian crisis -- namely by the special UN-Arab League Envoy Lakhdar Brahimi



Ambassador Al-Otaibi affirmed the State of Kuwait support for Brahimi's mission and his bids to resume negotiations for sake of ensuring "comprehensive implementation of the Geneva communique, issued on June 30, 2012." The State of Kuwait shares the UN Secretary General his deep regret for failure of the international community, regional powers and the Syrians of putting an end to this crisis and halting the violence, the Kuwaiti permanent delegate at the UN affirmed



Moreover, Kuwait supports UN resolutions that call for withdrawal of foreign fighters from Syria, bringing all officials responsible for genocides and breaches of international laws to account. "We also support the resolution stipulation that the council will take further steps in case of non-compliance and we look forward in this regard to the report that will be presented by the Secretary General to the Security Council in the end of the month," he said



As to Kuwait's contribution to relief aid for the Syrians, Ambassador Al-Otaibi noted its hosting of two international conferences for donations to the Syrians that resulted in raising unprecedented donations exceeding USD four billion to fund relief operations in Syria. Kuwait, over the past three years, offered USD one billion worth of aid, too



He expressed hope that all states that had pledged to contribute to the humanitarian support for the Syrian people would honor their obligations
