UPDATE 1-GCC summit offers hope to end dispute -Kuwaiti minister
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and non-GCC member Egypt have imposed sanctions on GCC member Qatar accusing it of cozying up to their regional rival Iran and supporting terrorism.
Kuwait's deputy foreign minister, Khalid al-Jarallah, expressed optimism that this year's summit will see a high level of representation from all member states.
"This summit is a glimpse of hope to revive the efforts of containing the long-standing gulf dispute", al-Jarallah said. (Reporting by Hesham Hajali Editing by Robin Pomeroy)
