China and Kuwait will achieve more results in practical cooperation under the framework of BRI with deepening bilateral partnership, said Chinese Ambassador to Kuwait Li Minggang.
KUWAIT CITY, July 8 (Xinhua) -- China and Kuwait will achieve more results in practical cooperation under the framework of Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) with deepening bilateral partnership, said Chinese Ambassador to Kuwait Li Minggang.
In July last year, the Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah paid a state visit to China.
It was the seventh visit of Sabah to China, Li said, adding that the visit plays an important role in developing China-Kuwait relations.
During his visit, China and Kuwait agreed to establish strategic partnership between the two countries to inject new impetus into bilateral ties and open up new prospects in the new era.
The two sides also reached important consensus on strengthening practical cooperation in various fields, Li said.
The high-level exchanges have always been an important driving force for the rapid development of bilateral relations, Li said.
The meeting between the Chinese and Kuwaiti leaders has guided the development of relations between the two countries in the new era, opening up new prospects and guaranteeing in-depth development of the relations from a higher level, Li stressed.
"It will help the two countries to achieve more results under the BRI," the ambassador said.
During the past year, the two sides have been implementing consensus reached by the two countries' leaders as the primary goal of the development of bilateral relations.
In December last year, Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, Kuwaiti emir's special envoy, first deputy prime minister and defense minister, visited China and discussed with the Chinese side how to implement the results of Emir's visit to China.
The Kuwaiti cabinet has set up a special committee to follow up on the implementation of the results, Li noted.
In addition, the two sides are also actively implementing other cooperation documents signed in the areas of economy, trade, investment, smart cities and other areas, Li said.
During the past year, the political mutual trust between the two countries has been enhanced, and the two sides have firmly supported each other's core interests and maintained close cooperation in the international arena, including the United Nations, Li added.
