The memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed on 24 December by Kuwait and Saudi Arabia to restart production in their shared Neutral Zone was widely welcomed as a breakthrough in a dispute which has been rumbling on since 2014. The deal was signed by Saudi energy minister Prince Abdelaziz Bin Salman, his Kuwaiti counterpart Khaled Ali Al-Fadhil and Kuwait’s foreign affairs minister Ahmed Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Sabah. It was proclaimed as “historic” by Kuwaiti prime minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah.
