MANAMA, Aug 26 (KUNA) -- The Kingdom of Bahrain and the State of Kuwait are keen on cementing further the mutual cooperation and brotherly ties bonding them since a long period of time, re-affirmed Bahraini Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al-Khalifa.
According to a statement released by the Kuwaiti Embassy here on Wednesday, the Prime Minister made the re-assertion during a reception of the Dean of the Diplomatic Corps and the State of Kuwait's Ambassador to the Kingdom, Sheikh Azzam Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah.
Prime Minister Prince Khalifa voiced satisfaction at the continuing improvement in these ties, during the meeting with Ambassador Sheikh Azzam, the statement added.
For his part, the ambassador expressed satisfaction at the level of the bilateral relations, noting that the Prime Minister is largely credited for the warmth in the bilateral relations between the two countries.
These ties have become "a stark example" for the inter-GCC relations, he said.
Bahrain and Kuwait are members of the six-seat GCC, founded in the early 80s to bolster ties and mutual cooperation. These two regional countries have particularly maintained warm relations since many years ago. (end)
