Saudi King Salman arrives in Kuwait on historic visit
Amir voices deep pleasure, hails brotherly ties
Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud will arrive in Kuwait today on an official visit, where he will hold talks with HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad AlJaber Al-Sabah. In his first official state visit to Kuwait since ascending the throne on Jan 23, 2015, King Salman will focus on reinforcing the strong relations with Kuwait. Kuwait is the final stop on King Salman’s Gulf tour, which began in the United Arab Emirates, followed by a visit to Qatar. He then traveled to Bahrain, which hosted this year’s Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) summit that ended yesterday.
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.
