The Kuwaiti envoy recalled the historic day in 1963 when diplomatic relations were formally established between the two brotherly countries. “Since its inception, relations between the State of Kuwait and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan have witnessed understanding and consensus on most regional and international issues, advocating for peace and stability,” said the Ambassador.

He said that our economic landscape reflects the vibrancy of our partnership, adding that bilateral trade flourishes, driven by strong energy cooperation and a shared commitment to economic diversity. The Ambassador highlighted Agriculture and life stock, technology, renewable energy and Mining as fields holding immense potential. “However, the true strength of our relations lies beyond formal agreements. It resides in the hearts and minds of our people. The warmth and hospitality extended by Kuwaitis to Pakistanis, and vice versa, is legendary,” said the envoy. He said that the two countries stood by each other in prosperity and adversity.

On his part, Pakistan’s Foreign Secretary said that the stamp reflects six decades of fraternal ties. It also signifies the will and determination on both sides to further strengthen the longstanding brotherly relations that have flourished over the years between the two countries. Pakistan and Kuwait have come a long way in strengthening and solidifying their relations. It is aptly illustrated by successful Pakistan-Kuwait ventures in banking, oil exploration and renewable energy. “We have also established institutional mechanisms of cooperation including Bilateral Political Consultations (BPC) and Joint Ministerial Commission (JMC) to promote and expand our ties in diverse fields; while cooperating with each other at various international and regional fora, said the Foreign Secretary.” He said that our two countries have firmly stood by each other in hours of trial as well as moments of celebration and look forward to expanding our collaboration in areas of mutual interest including food security, IT & engineering, construction and medicine. “Issuance of the stamp today is a celebration of friendship, cooperation and fraternity.
