Kuwait reiterated that building and expanding illegal Israeli settlements "is considered a flagrant violation of international law and international resolutions."

It called on the international community and the UN Security Council to assume their responsibility regarding the Israeli violations of international law and international legitimacy.

Kuwait reiterated its support for the Palestinians and their rights, including the right to have their own independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
