Speaker of Egypt’s House of Representatives Ali Abdel Aal kicked off over the weekend a five-day official visit to Kuwait.
The visit aims at boosting bilateral relations and strengthening parliamentary cooperation.
He started his visit by meeting Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah at al-Bayan Palace on Sunday.
The Emir stressed his country’s continued support to Egypt to achieve greater stability.
Abdel Aal hailed Kuwait’s financial and political support for Egypt and the humanitarian role played by Sheikh Sabah, especially in light of his receiving the title of “Leader of Humanitarian Action” by the United Nations.
Abdel Aal extended an invitation to Sheikh Sabah to visit Egypt and deliver a speech from parliament and address the Egyptian people, according to MENA.
Kuwait’s Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber al-Mubarak al-Sabah lauded the Egyptian community’s role in Kuwait’s development, stressing the importance of exchanging visits between the two countries’ officials.
He said these visits aim at enhancing the bilateral ties in which both parties could exchange views on various issues of mutual interest.
