‘Kuwait keen on cementing relations with Asian states’
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.
