State of Kuwait
I am pleased to accept the letters of credence accrediting you as Non-Resident Ambassador of the State of Kuwait to the Cooperative Republic of Guyana. I congratulate you on your appointment and I welcome you to Guyana.
I ask that you convey my best wishes to His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the Emir of the State of Kuwait, for his personal wellbeing and for the prosperity of the people of his country.
Guyana and Kuwait have enjoyed cordial relations since the establishment of diplomatic relations twenty-four years ago, on August 17, 1995. Our relationship is founded on mutual respect for each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, mutual non-interference in each other’s internal affairs, cooperation for mutual benefit, respect for treaties and international law and the maintenance of regional peace and security.
Relations between our countries have been enhanced over the years with the exchanges of high-level visits. Guyana was pleased to receive the Prime Minister of the State of Kuwait in 2010 during his tour of Latin America and the Caribbean Region. Exchanges of this nature have fostered economic, cultural, social and technical cooperation between Guyana and Kuwait.
The recent conclusion of a debt agreement between the two countries signed on March 2019 in Kuwait City, and the technical assistance provided to Guyana in the past for its infrastructural projects under the Kuwait Fund are tangible testaments of our enduring good relations.
I am confident that the bilateral cooperation between our countries will be enhanced in the years ahead and that your tenure will contribute to continuing cooperation and initiate new areas of collaboration, especially in the oil and gas sector, energy, sustainable development, agriculture and education.
Guyana is in transition towards becoming a ‘green state’ which will see more emphasis being placed on the protection of our environment, the preservation of our biodiversity, the promotion of renewable energy, and the adoption of practical measures to ensure climate adaptation. The ‘green state’ will allow us to respond more effectively to the challenges posed by climate change.
Climate change represents a threat to both our economy and environment. We look forward to sharing experiences in building climate-resilient economies and in creating a safer planet for our people.
I assure you of the full support of my Government in the discharge of your duties as Ambassador of the State of Kuwait to the Cooperative Republic of Guyana. I wish you every success as you fulfil your mandate.
