UK keen on bolstering ties with Kuwait - Lord Mayor of London
LONDON: The United Kingdom is keen on bolstering ties with the State of Kuwait on all possible domains, Lord Mayor of London Andrew Charles Parmley said yesterday. In an exclusive interview, Parmley lauded the significant political and humanitarian roles played by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah within the regional and international spheres, affirming that the GCC leader was a wise and levelheaded figure who deserved all respect and admiration.
On his upcoming two-day visit to Kuwait, which begins tomorrow, Parmley said that the Gulf country provided strong incentives for foreign investors to seek business in the region. The Lord Mayor of London affirmed that the goal of the visit was to reassure Kuwait and the GCC countries that the UK would remain as a strong business partner. Parmley’s visit comes on the backdrop of Brexit, an event that sent shockwaves around the globe after the UK expressed clear intensions to fully separate from the EU.
Parlmey revealed that more top UK officials will visit the region soon, pointing out the UK Prime Minister Theresa May will partake in the GCC summit to be held in Bahrain later next month. Parmley said that business personnel and investors around the globe should not be worried about the aftermath of Brexit, noting that his country had built solid relations with many nations that were not easily shaken by any given event. —KUNA
