His Highness Amir’s envoy arrives in China for official visit

KUWAIT, His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s envoy, First Deputy Premier and Defense Minister Sheikh Naser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, arrived in Beijing on Saturday for an official visit.

Kuwait’s ambassador to the People’s Republic of China Samih Hayat said in a statement to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that Sheikh Naser will deliver a written message from His Highness the Amir to Chinese President Xi Jinping on deepening bilateral cooperation and strengthening the strategic partnership between the two countries.

The ‘New Kuwait Vision 2035’ and the Chinese ‘Belt and Road’ initiative are compatible with each other, Hayat said, adding that the two countries’ leaders are ready to speed up their cooperation through implementing agreements and memorandums of understanding signed during the state visit to China by His Highness the Amir last July.

“Our bilateral relations with China are being strengthened day by day with conscious care, great interest and high-level and unrivaled communication between the two countries’ leaders,” he added.

He said that the two countries have taken great and carefully-studied steps, as the visit of Sheikh Naser Al-Sabah to China comes in a timely and pivotal time, a matter which will push bilateral relations to a broader perspective and promote the integration of existing developmental strategies.

Sheikh Naser was received by Ambassador Hayat, Chinese government’s representative and Assistant Foreign Minister for West Asian and North African Affairs Wang De, senior officials of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Kuwait’s embassy members and heads of the Kuwaiti accredited offices in China.

The delegation accompanying Sheikh Naser Al-Sabah includes Ambassador Hayat, Executive Director of the Development of Silk City (Subbia) and Boubyan Island, Faisal Al-Madalj, Lulua Al-Na’ma, Sheikha Al-Anoud Ibrahim Al-Sabah, Abdulwahab Al-Rashid and Sheikh Jaber Fahd Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
