US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo talked about the contentions in Syria and Yemen with Kuwaiti Emir Sheik Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah amid a visit to Kuwait City, State Department representative Robert Palladino said on Wednesday. 

"The Secretary expressed gratitude toward the Amir for his long-term association with the United States and his positive commitment on numerous territorial issues, including the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) debate [over Qatar], Syria, and Yemen," Palladino said in a readout of the gathering. 

The two heads underscored significance of an assembled GCC for accomplishing territorial success, security and dependability, just as countering Iran's action in the center East, he said. 

They additionally talked about the third US-Kuwait Strategic Dialog, which Pompeo went to in Kuwait City. 

Qatar has been under a discretionary and monetary bar since June 2017, when the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt, among others, disjoined strategic relations with Doha, blaming it for supporting psychological warfare and meddling in their inner undertakings. Qatar has disproved the charges. Accordingly, Doha constrained its exercises inside the GCC, and furthermore stopped support in the Saudi-drove Arab alliance, which is directing military activities in Yemen. 

Pompeo is as of now on a five-day voyage through the Middle East with planned stops in Kuwait, Israel and Lebanon.
