KUWAIT, Feb 29 (KUNA) -- Kuwait and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) signed, on Monday, a "Transit Agreement" to promote partnership and cooperation between the two parties.
The agreement was signed by First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah and NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
In a joint press conference, Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled stressed that the agreement is considered "another cornerstone that builds on an existing partnership between the two sides." He added that the agreement will strengthen Kuwait's capabilities on facing security challenges in the region.
On his part, Stoltenberg pointed out that the agreement will make NATO work more active and effective in the region.
The agreement, NATO's first in the Gulf region, will facilitate the transit of personnel, supplies and equipment to the Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan.
