H. E. Osama Shaltout, the Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to Kuwait said, since the independence of Kuwait until the present time, there has been firm solidarity between the two countries.

H. E. Osama Shaltout, the Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to Kuwait said, “The relationship between Kuwait and Egypt is witnessing positive growth and development at all political, military, humanitarian, economic, cultural, and popular levels,” expressing “appreciation for the great role that the State of Kuwait has played in providing humanitarian aid to Gaza, whether through sending aid or medical convoys.”

We celebrate the glorious revolution on Egypt’s 72nd anniversary, and my participation in the National Day is conclusive evidence of the close connection between our peoples and our distinguished relationship in all fields, said Dr. Mahmoud Boushahri, the Minister of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy and the Minister of State for Housing Affairs.

 

Dr. Mahmoud Boushahri, the Minister of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy and the Minister of State for Housing Affairs, expressed his joy at the Egyptian Embassy’s participation in the National Day on July 23.

In a press statement during the celebration held by the Egyptian Embassy on Monday, attended by officials, diplomats, and public figures, he said, “We celebrate the glorious revolution on its 72nd anniversary, and my participation is conclusive evidence of the close connection between our peoples and our distinguished relationship in all fields.”

For his part, His Excellency Osama Shaltout, the Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to the country, described the relationship between Egypt and Kuwait as “exemplary and based on a foundation of mutual trust and support that extends for decades.” In a speech he delivered during the occasion, he stressed that “since the independence of Kuwait until the present time, there has been firm solidarity between the two countries.” This is currently reflected in various aspects of joint cooperation in the sectors of investment, trade, energy, infrastructure, health care, education, culture, and tourism.

Ambassador Shaltout said, “This relationship culminated in the state visit of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to Egypt on April 30 and May 1 of this year, where he was received by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and decorated with the highest Egyptian honor, the Nile Necklace, in a way that embodies the bilateral relationship between the two countries and the strong respect and appreciation between the leaderships of the two brotherly nations.”

He continued, “During that visit, a joint statement was issued by the two countries addressing the positions of both Cairo and Kuwait on various issues, demonstrating the alignment and mutual coordination between them. Perhaps the most prominent of these issues is the Palestinian cause, which represents the pulse of the Arab and Islamic world and suffers from the absence of human conscience and the silence of the international community. The two countries always stress the need to stop the brutal Israeli aggression against the defenseless Palestinian people by adhering to the Security Council’s ceasefire resolution and the binding decisions issued by the International Court of Justice to stop military operations in Rafah. They emphasize the need for the occupation authorities to allow humanitarian aid to reach Palestinian citizens in Gaza and to implement the two-state solution by establishing the Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967.”

The Egyptian ambassador stressed that the relationship between the two countries is witnessing positive growth and development at all political, military, humanitarian, economic, cultural, and popular levels, expressing appreciation for the great role that the State of Kuwait has played in providing humanitarian aid to Gaza, whether through sending aid or medical convoys. We also express our appreciation for the support provided by the State of Kuwait to UNRWA.

The ambassador pointed out that his country is confident that Egyptian-Kuwaiti relations will continue to develop positively in terms of coordination at the bilateral level and within various international and regional organizations, and on various issues in the context of advancing the unified positions and visions of the two countries, our Arab region, and our Islamic surroundings, based on the principles and rules of international law and the Charter of the United Nations on the international agenda.

The Egyptian ambassador said, We meet today to commemorate the seventy-second anniversary of a pivotal moment in the history of Egypt—the July 23 Revolution—as that day bears witness to the determination of the Egyptian people to chart their own path away from foreign interference and internal conflicts. In this context, we recall some of the most important principles of that great revolution: social justice, equality among citizens, and national dignity, stressing that this revolution represented the beginning of a new era for the Arab Republic of Egypt. The Egyptian state also renewed its pledge to preserve these principles with the June 30 revolution, which moved Egypt from one state to another, from chaos to order, and from anxiety to safety. State institutions were stabilized, terrorism was eliminated, and problems and crises were solved one after another under the wise leadership of President El-Sisi.

He continued, “As we celebrate this historic day, Egypt continues to work toward achieving development goals by promoting industrial and agricultural growth, developing services, improving the citizens’ livelihoods, and fostering good foreign relations with all partners based on respect for the principles and rules of international law. This includes cooperation with partners to achieve development goals, foremost among them being the State of Kuwait, with which the Arab Republic of Egypt shares a deep-rooted bond throughout history.

In a statement on the sidelines of the ceremony, the ambassador further said, We are determined to complete the process of development and construction. Egypt is a peace-loving country, and Kuwait is as well. Kuwaiti-Egyptian relations are rooted in the depths of history—relations of one destiny, one history, and identical visions on all international and regional issues of common interest.
