Kuwait not iso­lated from Mideast tur­moil, chal­lenges: Am­bas­sador

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

LON­DON: The cur­rent tur­moil and ten­sion in the Mid­dle East is af­fect­ing all re­gional coun­tries and that also in­cludes Kuwait, said Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to the UK Khaled AlDuwaisan late Fri­day. Am­bas­sador Al-Duwaisan’s state­ment came at the an­nual meet­ing for the Na­tional Union of Kuwait Stu­dents (NUKS) the UK and Repub­lic of Ire­land Branch. “The chal­lenges in the re­gion re­quire vig­i­lance and counter-mea­sures against those mean­ing harm to Kuwait’s na­tional se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity,” said the Am­bas­sador.

The Am­bas­sador called on the stu­dents to stand in sol­i­dar­ity and help each other for the sake of their coun­try. He added that the cur­rent sta­tus quo in the re­gion was alarm­ing, say­ing that the peo­ple of Kuwait must face the mat­ter headon and as one na­tion un­der the guide­lines set by the lead­er­ship of the coun­try.

“This is why the gov­ern­ment is keen on de­vel­op­ing ed­u­ca­tion,” said Am­bas­sador Duwaisan, not­ing that this year, around 4,200 Kuwaiti stu­dents were study­ing in the UK and Ire­land which re­flected the gov­ern­ment’s ut­ter com­mit­ment to the cause of ed­u­ca­tion and learn­ing. He called on the stu­dents to use their time in the UK and Ire­land wisely, af­firm­ing that Kuwait was wait­ing for them to re­turn home in or­der to con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try.
