Kuwait envoy to Palestine arrives in West Bank

RAMALLAH, Kuwaiti Ambassador to Jordan and Palestine Aziz Al-Dihani arrived in the West Bank town of Jericho on Saturday to deliver his credentials as the Gulf State’s Ambassador to President Mahmoud Abbas.

His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, in late October, issued a decree appointing Al-Dihani as Kuwait’s non-resident ambassador to Palestine.

Al-Dihani is scheduled to hand over his credentials to President Abbas at the latter’s headquarters in Ramallah on Sunday.

The Palestinian National Authority (PNA) applauded the Kuwaiti move. President Abbas inaugurated the State of Palestine Embassy in Kuwait in 2013.
