The State of Kuwait followed with profound regret the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as capital of Israel and move its embassy to the holy city, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
Such a unilateral move contravenes the UN resolutions on maintaining the political, historical, legal and humanitarian status quo in Jerusalem, an official of the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
The US decision runs counter to the international laws and conventions, and puts in peril the future of the Middle East peace process, the official cautioned.
He expressed concern over the adverse repercussions of the US move on security, peace and stability in the region, which is already fraught with peril.
He voiced hope that the US administration would reconsider its move and focus on the peace efforts based on the international legitimacy, the two-state vision for peace and the Arab peace initiative.
