Kuwaiti FM: “The importance to strength the security of both countries... We will continue to support Lebanon”
Kuwaiti Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled al-Hamad al-Sabah affirmed his country’s keenness to maintain the good relations that link Kuwait and Lebanon.
“We emphasized to our brothers in Lebanon the importance of working together to strengthen the security of both countries and the development of relations on all levels. We in Kuwait will continue to support our brothers in Lebanon,” he said in a televised statement he made during Prime Minister Saad Hariri's visit to the Emirate.
The Deputy PM evaluated Hariri's visit as “an important visit. The meetings of Prime minister Hariri with his Highness the Emir and the Prime Minister confirm the strong relation on which the Lebanese and Kuwaiti sides are keen.”
He said that Kuwait has sent a “letter of protest to the Lebanese government regarding the verdict recently issued in Kuwait about the involvement of Hizbullah in training some Kuwaitis to execute acts that harm the security of the country. We hope this issue will be addressed within the context of the special relations between Lebanon and Kuwait.”
“His Highness the Amir and the Prime Minister emphasized that relations with Lebanon were not affected by these issues, but we stressed to our brothers in Lebanon the necessity of working together to reinforce the security of both countries and develop the relations on all levels. We in Kuwait will continue to support our brothers in Lebanon,” he added.
“We look forward to receiving an answer to the Kuwaiti memorandum, and hope that our Lebanese brothers will underscore that Kuwait’s security and stability should not be threatened. We will work together to pursue this long process of relations with greater achievements,” he concluded.
