Elab­o­rat­ing, HH the Amir in his state­ment wel­com­ing the Saudi monarch noted the great achieve­ments that have been made dur­ing King Sal­man’s era, bol­ster­ing the king­dom’s re­gional and in­ter­na­tional sta­tus. He also hailed King Sal­man’s firm and brave poli­cies at the Arab and Gulf lev­els and his fore­sight­ed­ness for bol­ster­ing re­gional se­cu­rity, peace and pros­per­ity.

Elab­o­rat­ing on King Sal­man’s traits, HH the Amir noted con­tri­bu­tions by the “great guest” for strength­en­ing the GCC march and his keen­ness on achiev­ing “fur­ther in­te­gra­tion” among the GCC coun­tries at var­i­ous lev­els. Sheikh Sabah said he is look­ing for­ward to this “ex­em­plary and dis­tinc­tive visit, fore­cast to re­sult in fur­ther ce­ment­ing the dis­tin­guished ties” be­tween the two GCC coun­tries.
