Speaking on the sidelines of the military exercise dubbed, “Gulf Wall” in Qatar, the Kuwaiti army’s Deputy Chief of Staff described the drill as “significant” to further qualify the cadets and enhance their military experience through practicing what they have studied at the Academy. “What we have seen today, in terms of skill and performance, is a remarkable accomplishment,” he said, adding that he is hopeful that similar exercises will be held. On the exercise, he said that it would be instrumental in further enhancing ties between Kuwait and Qatar, adding that it also created an opportunity for military officials from both nations to share their know-how with each other.
