The Sultanate of Brunei and the State of Kuwait on Tuesday signed four memorandums of understanding, one accord, and a protocol related to cooperation in education, tourism, and diplomacy.
The signing ceremony was attended by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and Sultan of Brunei Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah, who earlier held official talks on boosting bilateral ties and issues of mutual concern, at Istana Nurul Iman presidential palace.
Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, Kuwait's First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, and his Bruneian counterpart, Lim Jock Seng, signed MoUs on cooperation in higher education and scientific research, tourism coordination, training of staff of the two countries foreign ministries and establishing a joint cooperation commission.
The two sides also signed a single agreement on exempting holders of diplomatic passports from the two countries from entry visas and a protocol modifying the previously-inked agreement on averting double taxation and evading tax liabilities.
Meanwhile, the State of Kuwait Ambassador to Brunei Dr. Fahad Meshari Al-Dhafiri, held a luncheon in honor of His Highness the Amir and his accompanying delegation.
