Speaking to reporters after attending a celebration by the French embassy to mark the European country’s National Day, Al-Jarallah said the State of Kuwait appreciates French positions towards regional issues, adding that both countries share the same views on several international issues.

He hoped that bilateral relations would further develop and growth, noting that the Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs and French authorities co-organize exhibitions and festivals pertinent to the history and culture of the State of Kuwait with a view to promoting this relationship.

On her part, French Ambassador to Kuwait Marie Masdupuy underlined the significance of the “firm” relations between France and Kuwait, hoping that more business opportunities would be provided to French companies in Kuwait.
