The Kuwaiti diplomatic mission has raised the Italian flag marking the European country national day, as part of an Arab gesture of solidarity with the Italians in their fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Kuwait Embassy said in a statement on Sunday the symbolic gesture was part of an initiative, adopted by the council of Arab ministers in Italy for offering medical and humanitarian aid to the Italian government while it fights the contagion and its hard impact on the friendly Italian people.
The statement said Arab embassies’ buildings were adorned with the Italian flag as of April 25, demonstrating the missions’ participation in the national celebrations marking liberation of the country from the Nazi occupation.
Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti ambassador Sheikh Azzam Al-Sabah said the gesture constitutes a form of solidarity with Italy to affirm depth of the Arab-Italian historic and cultural bonds and as a salute to the Italian people for their will against the coronavirus as well as for sake of expressing solace with the afflicted and the medics.
