Kuwait's crown prince, in a speech at Tuesday's opening of parliament, urged the legislative and executive branches to focus on the country's development and put an end a prolonged feud and "petty matters" that have wasted time and money.
Shaikh Meshal Al Ahmad al Sabah took over most of the ruling emir's duties late last year and has since largely focused on tackling domestic political bickering that has long plagued the Arab state, hampering investment and key reforms.
"We hope for an end of the time of tension and escalation in the relationship between members of the legislative and executive authorities... There has been enough waste of painstaking efforts, precious time and squandered money," Shaikh Meshal said in the address. - Reuters
