RAMALLAH, May 7 (KUNA) — Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Humoud Al-Sabah has arrived in Ramallah, heading a Kuwaiti delegation to attend the opening of the 10th session of the Palestinian International Book Fair.
Coming from Amman, the minister, who doubles as Chairman of the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL), was received by Secretary-General of the Palestinian Presidency Al-Tayib Abdulrahim, Minister of Culture Ehab Bseiso and several other Palestinian officials.
Upon arrival, the minister voiced much pleasure to make this landmark visit to Palestine in order to attend the opening of 10th session of the Palestinian International Book Fair.
He said his visit came following the visit of First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Hamad Al-Sabah in September 2014 to reiterate Kuwait’s support to a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
He added that he would convey greetings from Kuwait’s political leadership, mainly His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, to the Palestinian leadership and people.
He noted that inviting Kuwait, which is the Capital of Islamic Culture for 2016, as Guest of Honor at the fair reflected Kuwait’s pioneering cultural and humanitarian role in this international cultural event in Palestine, which is dear to all Arabs and Muslims.
Sheikh Salman Sabah lauded strong and firm relations between Kuwait and Palestine, boasting that over decades, Kuwait has hosted and supported Palestinian people.
The minister concluded by stressing that the Kuwaiti cultural scene and its deep interaction with Palestinian literature and culture have made Kuwait a window on Palestine’s issue and its people’s culture since the 1960s.
The Kuwaiti delegation went to Jerusalem in order to perform prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque before the opening of the 10th session of the Palestinian International Book Fair due later today. (end) nq.mt
