Kuwaiti minister says visit aims to rebuild trust with Lebanon

Kuwait's foreign minister said on Saturday he was visiting Lebanon to rebuild trust with the country and show solidarity with the Lebanese people, adding that the move had been coordinated with other Gulf countries.

Foreign Minister Sheikh Ahmad Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Sabah's visit to Beirut was the first by a senior Gulf Arab official since a diplomatic rift over comments made by a former Lebanese government that were critical of Saudi Arabia's role in the Yemen war.

Sheik Ahmad was speaking after meeting Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati.
