‘Gulf Wall’ mil­i­tary ex­er­cise

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The Kuwaiti Army’s Deputy Chief of Staff Lieu­tenant Gen­eral Ab­dul­lah Al-Nawaf Al-Sabah has lauded the out­come of a mil­i­tary drill, say­ing it paid div­i­dends for cadets of the Ali Al Sabah Mil­i­tary Academy. 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. More­over, Gen­eral Sheikh Ab­dul­lah Al-Nawaf un­der­scored Kuwait’s keen­ness to bol­ster mil­i­tary ties with its Gulf neigh­bor. The mil­i­tary drill, held over a pe­riod of two weeks with Qatar’s Ahmed bin Mo­hammed Mil­i­tary Col­lege, fea­tured par­tic­i­pa­tion of more than 300 cadets, in what was the first ex­er­cise or­ga­nized by the ven­er­a­ble mil­i­tary school abroad.
