In Sweden "we" have high respect for His Highness the Amir, said Speaker of the Riksdag (the Swedish Parliament) Urban Ahlin said here on Sunday. His remarks came after being received by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah at Bayan Palace earlier today, as the Swedish top lawmaker is starting an official visit to the country.

"We are working very closely together in the UN Security Council between Sweden and Kuwait. We are very happy about cooperation that Kuwait has in the UN Security Council and we appreciate His Highness' mediating efforts in the region," he pointed out.

Sweden is a country which is always looking for a diplomatic and political solutions to crises and "we really feel that His Highness is doing here exactly the same, which we appreciate." Ahlin noted that Syria "is one example where Sweden and Kuwait together has put forward a resolution about humanitarian access and humanitarian support for the suffering people of Syria.

"That's only one example and we can see all around that Sweden and Kuwait can do a lot together in pushing forward diplomatic political solutions".
