KUWAIT, Oct 18 (KUNA) — Kuwait’s acting assistant foreign minister for the two Americas’ affairs Fadhel Al-Hassan said Tuesday that Peru is supportive of Kuwait’s candidacy for a non-permanent seat at the UN Security Council for 2018-19.
During a reception hosted by the Peruvian Embassy in Kuwait to mark the 195th national day of Peru, the Kuwaiti diplomat appreciated the longstanding friendship between the two countries, recalling the support offered by Peru to Kuwait during the Iraqi invasion in 1990.
“Peru plays a distinguished role in its region and is an active member of the regional and international organizations notably the United Nations,” he said.
On the bilateral ties, Al-Hassan said they have been growing since the two countries established their diplomatic relations in 1975.
The political and economic relations gained momentum after Peru founded its embassy in Kuwait in 1989, he said, commending the role of Ambassador Heli Adelfo Pelaez Castro in strengthening the friendly ties.
Al-Hassan expressed hope for even greater trade exchanges and more joint investments, and invited the Peruvian businesspeople to visit Kuwait in order to explore the investment opportunities. (end)
