Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Switzer­land hon­ored His High­ness Sheikh Nasser Al-Mo­ham­mad Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah of Kuwait for his ef­forts to fur­ther re­la­tions be­tween both na­tions. He was awarded in a cer­e­mony held to mark 50 years since the in­cep­tion of bi­lat­eral ties be­tween Switzer­land and the State of Kuwait.

Pres­i­dent of Geneva Univer­sity Pro­fes­sor Yves Flueck­iger handed His High­ness Sheikh Nasser a com­mem­o­ra­tive medal chris­tened, ‘Schola Gen­even­sis’, in a cer­e­mony held last Fri­day, with Swiss Min­is­ter of State for For­eign Af­fairs Eves Rossier in at­ten­dance.

An alum­nus of Geneva Univer­sity, His High­ness Sheikh Nasser thanked all those that “have shared their wis­dom” with him. More­over, rem­i­nisc­ing on Kuwaiti-Swiss ties, he noted that he was the very first Kuwaiti diplo­mat to serve the Euro­pean Fed­eral Re­pub­lic, as he was ap­pointed Kuwait’s Con­sul Gen­eral in Switzer­land in 1966. Mean­while, in a speech of his own, the Swiss For­eign Min­is­ter lauded ties with Kuwait dur­ing the course of the last 50 years. Speak­ing on pupils of Geneva Univer­sity, Flueck­iger said that the school “is proud of its stu­dents, most no­tably, His High­ness Sheikh Nasser,” prais­ing him for his suc­cess­ful stint as Kuwait’s Am­bas­sador to Switzer­land. Af­ter the cer­e­mony, a ban­quet in honor of His High­ness Sheikh Nasser was held, where se­nior Swiss of­fi­cials were in at­ten­dance. — KUNA
