Swiss Ambassador to Kuwait H.E. Benedict Gubler held a reception at his residence on 10 October to commemorate the 727th anniversary of the National Day of Switzerland. Addressing the gathering, Ambassador Gubler praised the excellent relations between Kuwait and Switzerland, which have been marked by close economical, political and cultural ties. Ambassador Gubler also held an exhibition by Kuwaiti artists at his residence, which gave guests an opportunity to witness expressions from young Kuwaiti artists.

Speaking on the sidelines of the function, the Assistant Foreign Minister for Europe Affairs Waleed AlKhubaizi praised Kuwait’s close and growing relations with Switzerland in the political and economic fields over the last 52 years. He mentioned that the close state-to-state and people-to people friendship is driven by the shared desire of leaders of both countries and high-level bilateral visits. Al-Khubaizi spoke highly of the fruitful cooperation and coordination at the international forums, and enumerated that both countries maintain almost identical views on regional and international issues of common concern. He added, “The two counties support the humanitarian efforts in areas struck by natural and man-made disasters, and back the initiative to reach peaceful settlement to armed conflicts worldwide.”
