ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs of Kuwait His Excellency Sheikh Dr. Ahmed Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Sabah will arrive in Pakistan on Thursday on a two-day visit from March 18-19, 2021 on the invitation of the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

The Kuwaiti foreign minister will be accompanied by a delegation comprising senior officials from the Kuwaiti Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Health, Interior, and Trade and Industry.

   

His visit comes in the backdrop of the bilateral meeting held with the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on the sidelines of the 47th Session of OIC Council of Foreign Ministers in Niger’s Capital Niamey in November 2020.

The two foreign ministers agreed to work closely towards further strengthening and expanding bilateral cooperation in diverse fields.

To follow-up on the two Foreign Ministers’ understanding, Kuwait’s Assistant Foreign Minister for Asian Affairs visited Pakistan in January 2021 and held consultations in the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Interior, Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development and Economic Affairs Division, as well as the Board of Investment.

During the visit, besides having wide-ranging talks with the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Dr. Ahmed Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Sabah will call on other dignitaries.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that Pakistan accords high importance to its fraternal ties with Kuwait, which are firmly rooted in shared faith and values. He said that the bilateral relationship is marked by high-level visits and growing cooperation across myriad fields.

During the global pandemic, the two Countries collaborated closely in the health sector and food security.

“Pakistan acknowledges the positive role of the Kuwaiti leadership in building bridges among the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC),” the Spokesperson said.

“Pakistan also stands in solidarity with the State of Kuwait in the efforts to strengthen unity among Muslim Countries.”

Chaudhri said that the visit of the Kuwaiti foreign minister will provide further impetus to the positive momentum in bilateral exchanges and deepening mutual cooperation.
