Lessons to be taught from an­niver­sary: Sheikh Talal

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The 27th an­niver­sary of the Iraqi in­va­sion brings with it sig­nif­i­cant lessons en­light­en­ing the Kuwaiti gen­er­a­tions, says Sheikh Talal Al-Sabah, the Act­ing Un­der­sec­re­tary of the Oil Min­istry. Speak­ing to jour­nal­ists fol­low­ing a sem­i­nar held yes­ter­day on the oc­ca­sion, Sheikh Talal re­called ef­forts that were ex­erted by de­voted Kuwaitis to put out fires, ig­nited by the oc­cu­piers at the oil in­stal­la­tions and fields. The last fire was ex­tin­guished in Novem­ber 1991. The fo­rum was or­ga­nized by the pub­lic re­la­tions and pe­tro­leum in­for­ma­tion depart­ment at the min­istry mark­ing the 27th an­niver­sary, un­der the theme ‘nar­ra­tives of the painful ag­gres­sion.’

Sheikh Talal ex­pressed deep grat­i­tude to all those who had taken part in re­pelling the ag­gres­sion; namely the late Amir His High­ness Sheikh Jaber Al-Ah­mad Al-Sabah and His High­ness the Fa­ther Amir Sheikh Saad Al-Ab­dul­lah Al-Sabah. More­over, he lauded the Kuwaiti cit­i­zens who united in the face of the ag­gres­sors. Mean­while, Sheikha Ta­mador Al-Sabah, the act­ing pub­lic re­la­tions su­per­vi­sor, echoed iden­ti­cal sen­ti­ments prais­ing those who strug­gled for jus­tice and Kuwait’s free­dom. —KUNA
