Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The his­toric and cul­tural ties be­tween Kuwait and Malaysia con­tinue to grow and flour­ish, As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary of Cul­tural Af­fairs in Kuwait’s Min­istry of Awqaf and Is­lamic Af­fairs Da­wood Al-Asousi af­firmed yes­ter­day. Al-Asousi made his re­marks to KUNA on the side­lines of the Pu­tra­jaya In­ter­na­tional Is­lamic Arts and Cul­ture Fes­ti­val (PIIACUF) 2016 in Pu­tra­jaya, Malaysia, where he heads the par­tic­i­pat­ing Kuwait del­e­ga­tion at the fes­ti­val. Kuwait is keen on par­tic­i­pat­ing in in­ter­na­tional cul­tural events, he af­firmed, adding that the GCC coun­try aims, through this event, at high­light­ing its cul­tural role and dis­play­ing the min­istry’s pub­li­ca­tions to the pub­lic, in­clud­ing Is­lamic cal­lig­ra­phy and paint­ings.

The min­istry has pre­vi­ously taken part in sev­eral sim­i­lar events in a num­ber of Euro­pean, Arab, and Mus­lim coun­tries, the Kuwaiti of­fi­cial said, adding that those par­tic­i­pa­tions were met with high in­ter­ac­tions and praises by the vis­i­tors. For his part, Kuwait’s Am­bas­sador Saad Al-Asousi ex­pressed his joy of the Kuwaiti par­tic­i­pa­tion in the in­ter­na­tional event, in­di­cat­ing that this is the sec­ond Kuwaiti par­tic­i­pa­tion in PIIACUF, which re­flects the coun­try’s keen­ness in high­light­ing its Is­lamic arts, her­itage, hand­crafts, and fash­ion on re­gional and in­ter­na­tional lev­els.
