KUWAIT, – Kuwait’s First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, said, the upcoming visit by Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud to Kuwait, will add to the already firm ground of the bilateral ties.

“The visit will be a historic juncture in the relationships between the two countries in all fields, which stood the test of time and continue to serve the joint interests, and fend off the common threats and challenges,” Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled said in statements Wednesday.

“The Amir, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, is keen on strengthening relations, whether on the state-to-state or the people-to-people levels, with all GCC member countries, particularly the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

“Kuwaiti-Saudi relations continue to grow, thanks to the care and keenness of the leaders of both countries,” he pointed out.

“King Salman will be more than welcome to be here as guest of the Amir and the Kuwaiti people, who remember with gratitude the Kingdom’s historic stances towards, and strong support to Kuwait,” he went on.

Sheikh Sabah recalled the “heroic and decisive” help offered by Saudi Arabia to Kuwait, in the struggle against the Iraqi invasion in 1990-1991, until the liberation of Kuwait and restoration of legitimacy.

He reaffirmed Kuwait’s desire to continue working with the Kingdom, to meet the aspirations of the two peoples, boost cooperation among Arab and Muslim nations, and contribute to international peace and stability.

Kuwait will be the fourth leg in the Saudi King’s tour of the GCC states, which took him to the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain, where he attended the 37th GCC Summit yesterday.–
