Kuwait to relocate consulate in New York to Houston

In a strategic move to optimize its diplomatic presence, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced plans to relocate its consulate in New York to Houston, Texas. This decision comes as part of a broader reorganization initiative aimed at expanding consular coverage across the United States.

The revelation was made by His Excellency Abdullah Al-Yahya, Minister of Foreign Affairs, to Al-Rai newspaper. He explained that the relocation reflects the ministry’s commitment to ensuring effective representation and support for Kuwaiti citizens residing in the vast American territory.

“The new consulate in Houston will complement our existing diplomatic missions in Los Angeles, New York, and Washington D.C.,” stated Minister Al-Yahya.

Previously, a decree had been issued to cancel some Kuwaiti diplomatic missions in some countries, including Myanmar, Cambodia, Lao, Gabon and Zimbabwe. “The closure of certain missions represents the first phase of our long-term plan, which is carefully designed to safeguard the interests of the state,” affirmed Minister Al-Yahya.

The ministry envisions a second phase of the plan that will involve the establishment of new consular outposts and the leveraging of existing Kuwaiti institutions, such as the Kuwait Fund for Development, to expand consular coverage in select regions.
