Kuwait is the first country in the Middle East to take the initiative to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for cooperation with China in BRI after its announcement in September 2013, he pointed out. Al-Najem underlined the depth of the historical bilateral ties that go back over 50 years between Kuwait and China, citing a recent visit by His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, during which the prospects for cooperation were consolidated and several MoUs were signed in various fields.

He also stressed Kuwait’s keenness on its strategic partnership with China and ways to support and develop it in various fields in a way that contributes to achieving mutual benefit and common interests. BRI contributed to the participation of over 150 countries and more than 40 international organizations, in addition to concluding more than 200 cooperation agreements on the joint construction and creating about 420,000 job opportunities in the countries participating in its construction. Today, China holds BRI’s third forum in the presence of the Chinese president and with the participation of heads of multiple countries and officials from more than 90 countries. — KUNA
