Kuwait not isolated from Mideast turmoil, challenges: Ambassador
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.
