Meeting with the Delegation Led by the NA President of the State of Kuwait Ali Fahd Al-Rashid
1 / 7

On May 30 the President of the National Assembly Hovik Abrahamyan and the NA deputies met with the Delegation led by the President of the National Assembly of the State of Kuwait Ali Fahd Al-Rashid.

Welcoming the guests Hovik Abrahamyan expressed conviction that this meeting would promote further development of the inner-state and parliamentary relations. By his assessment, a big potential is created, all the opportunities exist for boosting the political, economic and cultural ties and for the implementation of joint programmes in that direction. With respect to the development of the inter-parliamentary relations he highlighted the consistent work of the friendship groups and the activation of mutual visits. The NA President thanked the Kuwaiti authorities for caring attitude shown towards the Armenian community.

The Head of the Parliament touched upon the problems of regional development and security, assuring that Armenia had been and remains a supporter for the peaceful co-existence with all nations and peoples and the establishment of multilateral relations. He presented the fact of historical injustice of forcibly annexing the Nagorno Karabakh to Azerbaijan, and talked about the policy of depriving Armenians of their land adopted by Azerbaijan, self-defence of the Artsakh people and resoluteness of self-determination, the existing realities of the NK issue settlement, assuring that Armenia continues to remain propagator of solving the issue through peaceful negotiations.

Hovik Abrahamyan also touched upon the Armenian Genocide perpetrated by Ottoman Turkey in 1915, then thanked the Arab people for supporting and giving asylum the Armenians, who escaped the massacre during those years. By the NA President’s assessment, Turkey not only does not wish to recognize its committed crime, but today it also continues the policy of blockading Armenia and does its utmost to fail the initiatives of Armenia to establish relations without any preconditions. Hovik Abrahamyan has reaffirmed the idea that despite the existing realities, Armenia continues the policy of peaceful co-existence with its neighbours.

The President of the National Assembly of the State of Kuwait Ali Fahd Al-Rashid thanked for the warm reception and expressed conviction that from now on the friendly relations of the two peoples would be strengthened by the development of mutually beneficial economic and political relations for the two countries. He highly assessed the constructive and peaceful policy pursued by Armenia and expressed hope that through peaceful negotiations all the disagreements with the neighbours would be solved, what happened in the relations of Kuwait with Iraq. The President of the National Assembly of the State of Kuwait Ali Fahd Al-Rashid highly appreciated the role of the Armenian community for the contribution to different spheres of life in Kuwait, characterizing the Kuwaiti Armenians as clever and law-abiding citizens.

Ali Fahd Al-Rashid invited Hovik Abrahamyan on an official visit to Kuwait.

During the meeting both sides also touched upon the perspectives of cooperation in different spheres of economy and possible investments. Hovik Abrahamyan has assured that Armenia’s tax field is liberal and favourable. Regarding the concrete steps, he proposed in the works of the Inter-government Commission or within the framework of his visit to be held to Kuwait to include also businessmen in the delegation, who as a result of joint discussions, would specify their works to be done and would undertake concrete steps.

The President of the National Assembly of the State of Kuwait took a note in the NA Book of Honourable Guests.

After the meeting the Presidents of the parliaments of the two countries had a press conference.

The NA President Hovik Abrahamyan informed the attendees , that during the meeting with the NA President of Kuwait numerous issues had been discussed, and noted that he highly appreciated the cooperation between Armenia and Kuwait with respect to politics and economy. At the same time he recorded that there was a big potential, big resource to more activate, more strengthen and develop the cooperation.

Hovik Abrahamyan also said that an agreement had been reached on cooperation of delegations of the two countries in international structures.

“We thanked the Arab people, the Kuwaiti authorities for the attitude that they display towards our compatriots, who live and create in Kuwait,” the NA President said. Hovik Abrahamyan expressed conviction that the visit of the President of the Kuwaiti Parliament would promote the reinforcement and development of the relations of the two countries.

The NA President noted that an agreement had been also reached on the mutual visits at the level of Parliamentary Friendship Groups. The parliaments of the two countries will support the Inter-governmental Commissions for further developing the cooperation from both sides in economic sphere.

“Once again I welcome the NA President of Kuwait, all members of the Delegation on the occasion of visiting Armenia,” the NA President said.

T he President of the National Assembly of the State of Kuwait Ali Fahd Al-Rashid thanked for the warm reception that they felt and saw from the first moment of putting their foot in Armenia, the President of the National Assembly of the State of Kuwait Ali Fahd Al-Rashid said that the friendly relations of the two countries had deep historical roots and they should take into account that fact and advance forward. Noting that their aim is to have a contribution in strengthening the friendly relations between Armenia and Kuwait the Head of the Kuwaiti Parliament has said that their visit to Armenia is also a good occasion for cooperation in international structures in future. He highlighted the visit of the Delegation of the Kuwaiti Parliament with respect to the fact that they had heard from the authorities and been informed on the event happening in Armenia.

“We heartily wish the friendly Armenian people to settle all the border problems with everybody through peaceful means,” Ali Fahd Al-Rashid said.

The Heads of the Armenian and Kuwaiti Parliaments also answered the journalists’ questions.
