KUWAIT - The Sultanate of Oman is looking forward to the state visit by Emir Sheikh Mishal al Ahmed al Jaber aI Sabah, Oman's Ambassador to Kuwait, Dr. Saleh al Kharusi, told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Tuesday.
AI Kharusi said that the visit would include a summit meeting with His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tariq, which is of high significance for both countries especially since it is taking place a few months after the Kuwaiti Emir assumed post on December 16.
Since 1970, the leaders of the two brotherly nations exchanged frequent visits to boost ties on all possible levels, said the Ambassador, who noted that the current visit of Emir Sheikh Mishal is part of such a great legacy.
The ambassador affirmed that bilateral ties were witnessing a new phase with the launch of Duqm Refinery and the investment in the project, which also included a petrochemical complex, amounted to RO9 billion, making it one of the most important ventures amongst GCC countries.
The ambassador also said that the two countries were eager to boost ties on all possible domains, commending in this regard, the recent outcome of the ninth session of the Omani-Kuwaiti joint committee meeting, which was held in Muscat last March.
