"The state of Kuwait expresses its extreme pain for the continued bloodshed among the brotherly Syrian people," said a statement by a foreign ministry official cited by state news agency KUNA.
"Kuwait calls for dialogue and a political solution to allow implementing true reforms that meet the legitimate demands of the Syrian people away from the security actions," said the unnamed official.
The statement came after continued protests and demands by MPs for the Kuwaiti government to condemn the military crackdown in Syria and to expel the Syrian ambassador.
