Ambassador of Germany H.E. Karlfried Bergner hosted a reception to mark his country’s National Day at the Jumeirah Hotel on 6 November. Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah was the chief guest on the occasion.

On the sidelines of the function, Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah lauded the solid relations between Kuwait and Germany and pointed out that the significance of close bilateral ties is reflected in the visit of H.H. the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to Germany.

Minister Al-Jarallah also mentioned that Kuwait has large investments in Germany, both at the government and private sector level, and that German companies have been active in Kuwait for a long time and contribute to various development projects. He added that Kuwait appreciates the role played by Germany in the region and the world, and looks forward to 2019 when Germany takes a seat on the United Nations Security Council.

For his part, Ambassador Karlfried Bergner expressed his happiness that the Kuwait-German relations are excellent, and referred to the visit of the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah to Germany in June as evidence.

Ambassador Bergner stressed that the relationship between the two countries are ongoing and that the representatives plan to work together on the Security Council next year.

The National Day of Germany is celebrated as German Unity Day and marks the reunification treaty signed on 3 October, 1990 that saw the former GDR (East Germany) join the Federal Republic of Germany.

Following reunification, the five states of Germany, which had been abolished in 1952, were reinstated as regions of one country. East and West Berlin became one unified city and the German flag was raised above the Brandenburg Gate.

Germany has become a global powerhouse over the years and the country is the birthplace of major feats in technology, including the printing press, the automobile, aspirin and MP3 technology to mention just a few. Today, Germany promises a roller-coaster ride of soul-stirring scenery, spirit-lifting culture, romantic palaces, half-timbered towns and big modern city landscapes.
