DUBAI, March 14, (KUNA): Kuwait’s cul­tural at­tache in Dubai signed Wed­nes­day a co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment with Amer­i­can Univer­sity of Shar­jah (AUS) in the frame­work of ex­chang­ing stu­dent schol­ar­ships. Head of the Cul­tural Of­fice at Kuwait’s con­sulate in Dubai Mordhi Obaid Ayash Al-Enezi signed the agree­ment with the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the AUS Biorin Sher­feh. Af­ter sign­ing the agree­ment, Al-Enezi said in an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with KUNA that this step came fol­low­ing con­tin­u­ous ef­forts made by Kuwait’s Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion to open new hori­zons with Gulf univer­si­ties es­pe­cially in UAE.

He as­sured that UAE univer­si­ties have a high-qual­ity ed­u­ca­tional sys­tem with in­ter­na­tional stan­dards, with which Kuwait is ea­ger to co­op­er­ate. He ex­pressed his thanks to the higher ad­min­is­tra­tion of AUS for its sup­port to sign this agree­ment, wish­ing this co­op­er­a­tion to con­tinue be­tween the two broth­erly coun­tries.

He also thanked Kuwait’s Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Higher Ed­u­ca­tion and the min­istry’s Un­der­sec­re­tary for their sup­ports, which helped for­eign cul­tural of­fices to suc­ceed in their mis­sion. On the other hand, Dr Al-Enezi said that Kuwait’s cul­tural of­fice in Dubai will hold the an­nual cer­e­mony to honor out­stand­ing Kuwaiti stu­dents study­ing in the United Arab Emi­rates on March 21. There are about 1,000 Kuwaiti male and fe­male stu­dents study­ing now at dif­fer­ent univer­si­ties of UAE.

Mean­while, Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to the Repub­lic of Korea Bader Al-Awadhi met Wed­nes­day with Deputy Min­is­ter for po­lit­i­cal af­fairs Am­bas­sador Yoon Soon Ku. Both par­ties dis­cussed bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion in the fields of diplo­macy, econ­omy, cul­ture, and tech­nol­ogy, Kuwait em­bassy said in a press re­lease.

They fo­cused on try­ing to open new hori­zons for co­op­er­a­tion that would strengthen the strate­gic part­ner­ship be­tween the two coun­tries, the em­bassy added. Am­bas­sador Al-Awadhi noted that the Korean gov­ern­ment is highly in­ter­ested is en­hanc­ing its his­tor­i­cal, po­lit­i­cal, and eco­nom­i­cal re­la­tions with the State of Kuwait.

“We can feel the re­spect and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the Kuwait lead­er­ship headed by His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and Kuwait’s role in main­tain­ing in­ter­na­tional peace and se­cu­rity”, Am­bas­sador Al-Awadhi said re­fer­ring to its ac­tive role-played dur­ing its mem­ber­ship and lead­er­ship of the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil last Fe­bru­ary.

Kuwait and South Korea, which is an im­por­tant eco­nomic and po­lit­i­cal part­ner, will cel­e­brate their 40th an­niver­sary of estab­lish­ing diplo­matic ties. Kuwait is cur­rently wit­ness­ing a large-scale con­struc­tion phase in co­op­er­a­tion with ma­jor Korean com­pa­nies for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of in­fra­struc­ture projects in the res­i­den­tial ar­eas and the oil sec­tor. The value of projects im­ple­mented dur­ing the past five years amounted to $29 bil­lion.
