CAIRO (Reuters) – Kuwait’s deputy foreign minister said on Monday that Kuwait shares Saudi Arabia’s optimism to end a disagreement over the Saudi–Kuwaiti neutral zone “very soon,” state news agency (KUNA) cited him as saying.

Khaled al-Jarallah added that he listened to the Saudi energy minister’s “positive statements” and wished to “close the page on this disagreement very soon”, KUNA reported.

Saudi energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman had said earlier this month talks with Kuwait about resuming oil production in jointly operated fields in the Saudi-Kuwaiti neutral zone are “positive” and there was political will to resolve relevant issues.
