Kuwait cooperation with ASEAN countries highlighted

Kuwait, Kuwait has placed much emphasis on its relations with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), given the prominence of the regional bloc, a Kuwaiti diplomat has said.

His Highness the Amir Shaikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's recent visit to China has proven fruitful with promising results, the Director General of the Saud Al-Nasser Diplomatic Institute Ambassador Abdulaziz Al-Sharekh said.

He was addressing a seminar organised by the embassies of a group of ASEAN member states, which he described as an important initiative that would help bring Kuwait closer to the inter-governmental organization, Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

Thailand's ambassador to Kuwait Dusit Manapan revealed that nine ASEAN ambassadors are currently stationed in the Gulf state, saying it was a testament to the regional bloc's desire to improve bilateral ties.

A Thai foreign ministry representative had similar remarks as well, saying that ASEAN has long shared vigorous relations with the Gulf Cooperation Council.
