KUNA mourns passing of Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah

– Kuwait News Agency Chairman and Federation of Arab News Agencies (FANA) Vice President Sheikh Mubarak Al-Duaij Al-Sabah has lamented the loss of Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah as a man who dedicated his life to serving Kuwait and its people.

Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad was known for his “deep love for his country and great pride in its history and heritage,” KUNA’s chief said, recalling his “sincerity and dedication” to the nation.

He contributed to the completion of several “crucial and difficult” cultural and economic projects with an “insightful vision,” said the news agency head.

These included the ‘Silk City,’ one of the largest projects in Kuwaiti history, along with his contributions to the long-term economic diversification plan, New Kuwait 2035, which he was keen to see being achieved in spite of difficult regional and global circumstances.

“He was known for good morals, boundless ambition, humility and kindness,” in addition to being “trustworthy and a model for success.” He picked up “extensive experience and received great wisdom growing up at the royal palaces of Kuwait, living side-by-side with its prominent rulers and leaders from whom he learned a lot,” being the son and grandson of past Amirs, said Sheikh Mubarak.

The KUNA chief went on to describe the passing as a “great loss for Kuwait and its people,” saying the late figure will “remain etched in the memory of the Kuwaiti people as a symbol of generosity and devotion.”
