The Kuwait Conference (1923-1924) and its Depiction in Egyptian Newspapers ( in Arabic )

Auther : Sultan Alasqah

The Kuwait conference that took place at the end of 1923 and the beginning of 1924 was important for Great Britain which was seeking to find solutions related to its policy in the Arabian Peninsula and its surroundings. Invitations to attend this conference were sent to Abdulaziz al-Saoud sultan of Najd, Faisal Ibn al-Hussein al-Hashimi, king of Iraq, and his brother Abdullah Ibn al-Hussein, the emir of Transjordan. They responded positively and sent their deputies. An invitation was similarly sent to the king of Hijaaz, Al-Sherif al-Hussein Ibn Ali, but he declined as he was completely against this conference. Eventually, he sent his son Zayd as a delegate to negotiate on his behalf. The conference failed after several meetings held in the Emirate of Kuwait, which was chosen as the venue for the conference. Significant incidents happened in the wake of that conference which makes it an important subject of study. The Egyptian newspapers focused on this conference and its proceedings, spotted the positions of the three delegations which met in Kuwait, and pointed to the role of the British at its meetings. The research was limited to two Egyptian newspapers: "Al-Mokattam" and "The News" because of their interest in tracking the above mentioned conference. "The News" Outperformed "Al-Mokattam" in its analysis and tracking of the conference.
