Kuwaiti Deputy Foreign Minister Khalid Al­Jarallah said on Wednesday that Kuwait is looking forward to strengthening ties with the United Kingdom, adding that Kuwait feels safe when it has an ally like the United Kingdom.

In a statement to reporters on the sidelines of his participation in the ceremony of the Ministry of Information and the British Embassy on the occasion of 120 years of friendly relations, AlJarallah said that Kuwait has many mechanisms for cooperation to strengthen bilateral tiesÍž topped by the Joint Steering Committee.

He added that the meetings of the Joint Steering Committee, which reached 14 sessions, added a lot of construction to that distinguished relationship.

He expressed Kuwait's satisfaction, happiness and pride in the historic relationship with Britain, which was built on respect, continuity and common interests between the two countries, pointing out that this relationship went through many different stations.

He praised Britain's support for the liberation of Kuwait by then British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in forming the nucleus of determination to liberate Kuwait, praising her heroic role to defend the sovereignty and stability of Kuwait, a role that many men can not do. He said that the Kuwaitis recall such stances with respect and appreciation.
