The Ambassador of the Republic of Bulgaria, Dimitar Dimitrov, expressed his happiness at the return to normal life in Kuwait, and his pride at the Bulgarian doctors and nurses, who, along with their Kuwaiti colleagues, contributed to overcoming the challenges of the pandemic.

Speaking on the sidelines of his meeting with the Bulgarian community and Bulgarian graduates in the presence of MP Dr. Hammoud Al-Azmi, and head of the Services Authority at the Ministry of Defense Sheikh Dr. Abdullah Al-Mishaal, Dimitrov said the Bulgarian graduates (doctors, engineers, technicians and representatives of other sectors) are performing their duties to the fullest with high professionalism, which indicates the quality of education in Bulgaria, expressing his hope that the number of Bulgarian graduates in Kuwait will increase, and that Kuwaitis will return to study in Bulgarian universities, which are distinguished by European accreditation, and activate scientific and academic cooperation, reports a local Arabic daily.

He pointed out that Kuwait University annually recruits distinguished Bulgarian students to study the Arabic language. The authorities in the two countries are currently working on the completion of two new projects in the field of education and scientific research, and another in the field of medicine and medical sciences, through which the old agreements concluded between our two countries, will be replaced.

“And I want to open the door to volunteering to form a working group, to put forward initiatives on events through which we can celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of diplomatic relations between our two countries,” he added.

He stressed his country’s relations with Kuwait are characterized by mutual respect, but they are still less ambitious in the commercial and investment fields, expressing his hope that there will be direct flights between Kuwait and Sofia throughout the year, to enhance communication and explore promising investment opportunities in the two countries, and that air traffic is not limited to the summer season only, as Bulgaria is an ideal destination for tourism, recreation and physiotherapy, whether in the mountains or on the sea.

In turn, Sheikh Abdullah Al-Mishal confirmed the existence of medical cooperation with Bulgaria in light of the agreements concluded between the two countries and valued the depth of friendship between the authority and the Bulgarian community, which contributed greatly to overcoming the “Corona” crisis, as there are doctors, nurses and technicians working in Jaber Al-Ahmad Hospital for the Armed Forces and units affiliated with the authority.
