KUWAIT — Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al Mubarak Al Hamad Al Sabah on Monday commended the ties Jordan and Kuwait enjoy in different economic, political and social sectors, describing bilateral relations as “strong” and “distinguished”. 

During a meeting with a Jordanian parliamentary delegation, which is currently on an official visit to the Gulf country, Sheikh Jaber stressed Kuwait’s commitment to support the Kingdom to enable it to overcome economic challenges it is facing due to the influx of large numbers of Syrian refugees, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

He noted that Jordanian-Kuwaiti ties have developed in various sectors, adding that his country “will continue to support Jordan in light of the current situation it is going through”. 

MP Ahmad Safadi, who is heading the Jordanian delegation, said the relationship between the two countries represents a model in joint Arab action, citing the difficult economic situation the Kingdom is facing due to the Syrian crisis and the presence of thousands of refugees. 

Highlighting that Kuwaiti investments in the Kingdom stand at more than JD10 billion, MP Abdullah Obeidat called for increasing investments in the renewable energy, transport and tourism sectors.

He also acquainted the Kuwaiti premier with Jordan’s reform drive. 

The delegates, who arrived in Kuwait on Sunday, are scheduled to meet with several high-ranking Kuwaiti officials to discuss prospects for further cooperation, ways to boost parliamentary ties and coordinate their stances in issues of mutual concern in the international arena, Petra reported.
