‘Kuwait keen on ce­ment­ing re­la­tions with Asian states’

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

KUWAIT: The newly ap­pointed for­eign min­is­ter’s as­sis­tant for Asian af­fairs Adel AlSaeed re­cently stressed that Kuwait and Cam­bo­dia share strong and de­vel­op­ing re­la­tions, bear­ing in mind that Cam­bo­dia had won its in­de­pen­dence from France; a coun­try whom Kuwait al­ready had very good and strong ties with.

Speak­ing to re­porters at the side­lines of a cer­e­mony or­ga­nized by the Cam­bo­dian em­bassy in Kuwait to cel­e­brate the coun­try’s national day, Saeed stressed that His High­ness the Amir, His High­ness the Crown Prince, His High­ness the Prime Min­is­ter, First Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and For­eign Min­is­ter and top of­fi­cials at the for­eign min­istry show great in­ter­est in ce­ment­ing Kuwait’s re­la­tions with Asian coun­tries in gen­eral. He added that he would carry on and catch up where his pre­de­ces­sor had left of in order to achieve sub­stan­tial shift in the Kuwaiti-Asian re­la­tions.

Mean­while, the Cam­bo­dian Am­bas­sador to Kuwait Sman Manan said Novem­ber 9th would al­ways be a dear his­toric oc­ca­sion for every Cam­bo­dian ci­ti­zen as it com­mem­o­rates his coun­try’s in­de­pen­dence from France back in 1953. He added that his coun­try had al­ways adapted a non-align­ment pol­icy ever since, and that such pol­icy had won Cam­bo­dia the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity’s sup­port. He also com­mended the out­stand­ing re­la­tions be­tween his coun­try and Kuwait.

Am­bas­sadors are pic­tured in at­ten­dance.
