Moussa: AL recognizes Kuwaiti bitterness, but Iraq is in danger
Regional-Kuwait, Politics, 12/13/2002
Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa said on Wednesday the pan-Arab organisation is trying to study details of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's latest address in an effort to contain -any more tensions.
"Kuwait has absolutely rejected the speech and AL understands this bitterness and is taking it into account," said Moussa.
In statements to the Kuwaiti Al Rai Al Aam daily on Wednesday, Moussa said Kuwait has negatively analyzed the speech, noting that the situation is already tense and cannot tolerate any more tension.
Iraq is in danger "and we want to get it out of this cycle," said Moussa.
He voiced hope Baghdad would take a brave and decisive step by solving the problem of the Kuwaiti captives.
"We will do our best to sort out the problem of captives which we recognise how sensitive and important," added Moussa.
He pointed out that Russia rejects any military action against Iraq and supports a political solution and calls for giving enough chance for the inspectors.
All Arab states are against any military action against Iraq, said Moussa, war is not inevitable but is very likely, said Moussa, noting that if it became an inescapable all diplomatic efforts would have failed.
He said there is a number of Arabs (one Egyptian woman and six Jordanians) with the international inspectors.
