KUWAIT CITY, April 16: Pakistani Ambassador to Kuwait Malik Muhammad Farooq has confirmed that the two countries have strong ties in various fields, reports Al-Qabas daily. Farooq made the statement during the Iftar party he organized for the media recently. He also revealed that a new batch of Pakistani doctors, nurses and technicians will arrive “before the end of summer to work in the government health sector. The Pakistani nurses have proven their capabilities in the most difficult circumstances.
They played a remarkable role during the Corona crisis. We have had talks with the Kuwaiti private sector to bring the same medical teams to work in private hospitals soon. We have many skilled workers in different fields. We are ready to serve Kuwait and give an opportunity for new generations to work in Kuwait and contribute to this country’s renaissance.”
He added the Pakistani community in Kuwait played a pivotal role in strengthening cooperation between the two countries, which stood by each other in many difficult times. He is hoping for easing procedures to obtain entry visas for Pakistani businesspersons and skilled professionals to further strengthen Kuwaiti-Pakistani ties.
