KUWAIT CITY, April 30: The Chinese Ambassador to Kuwait, Zhang Jianwei, disclosed “between 40 and 50 Kuwaitis speak the Chinese language, some of whom learned it a long time ago in order to get acquainted with the Chinese culture, reports Al-Jarida daily. He pointed out since his arrival in Kuwait and his communication with the people he found the Kuwaitis love the Chinese language and culture, and this will be one of the promising areas in the future. He was speaking during an evening he held at his residence under the title “Speak the Chinese language and learn about the beauty of Chinese dishes with the Chinese ambassador’ in the presence of a number of Chinese-speaking Kuwaitis and media people.
The evening included a display of photographs of the history of relations between the two countries through official meetings between the Kuwaiti and Chinese leaderships. In response to a question about when the Chinese companies will start work in road maintenance in Kuwait, the Chinese ambassador recalled the meeting of Minister of Public Works Amani Bouqmaz about a month ago with 7 ambassadors and charge d’affaires, and asked them to nominate major companies to repair roads. He added, “We nominated 5 Chinese companies working in Kuwait, which have already completed major projects, and we await the response from the Ministry of Works, and if any Chinese company wins, it will do its work with high quality, as is known about Chinese companies, their adherence and respect for quality.
Zhang welcomed Kuwaitis to visit his country, after lifting the restrictions of the corona pandemic from April 29, indicating, “We have tourist places throughout the year, given the vast area of China,” stressing on the other hand, “China’s respect for all religions,” and pointing out that “Its national policy pursues respect for all religions and nationalities.” He pointed out that there are 56 nationalities in China, including 10 nationalities that embrace Islam, and denied reports about harassment of Muslims during the month of Ramadan, saying: “Everything that was reported on this subject is unfounded.”
