​We remain very concerned by the ongoing tensions in the Gulf. The Prime Minister, Foreign Secretary and other Ministers engage with our Gulf friends to encourage de-escalation and that parties get firmly behind Kuwait's mediation efforts to resolve the dispute. We make it clear that Gulf unity matters to the security and stability of the region.
