Kuwait and China are both eager to collaborate on Al-Harir City, and the five Kuwaiti Islands’ development projects, said Kuwait’s Ambassador to China, Sameeh Johar Hayat.

Hayat’s statement came, on the sideline of the Kuwaiti embassy’s celebration of the 57th National Day, the 27th Liberation Anniversary, and the 12th occasion of the Amir, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s ascension of office. The festivities were held in the Chinese capital, Beijing.

After meeting with the Assistant Chinese Foreign Minister, Chen Xiaodong, on the sideline of the celebrations, Hayat said, both countries were eager to develop relations on various platforms, especially within the energy sector, infrastructural development, and mass communication.

Kuwait, which established diplomatic ties with China in 1971, is amongst the first Arab countries to sign the Chinese “One Belt One Road” Initiative, aimed at the economic prosperity of Eurasia countries, said the Ambassador, who affirmed that this step was reflective of his country’s keenness on developing ties with China.

Kuwait and China are eager to pursue more cooperation in the near future, in order to achieve the aspiration of both the Kuwaiti and Chinese people, he affirmed.
