KUWAIT, Dec 24 (KUNA) -- Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al-Saud, on Tuesday, said that talks between his country and Kuwait on the neutral zone in the past few years were focusing more on "harmony" rather than striking a deal.
On the sidelines of the deal's signing ceremony, the Saudi minister commended the brotherly relationship between His Highness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and the Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz, describing it as a basis of the Kuwaiti-Saudi partnership.
After a meeting with His Highness the Amir, the Saudi minister affirmed that what links the two countries was greater than borders, but history and brotherly ties.
He also pointed out that the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has a prominent role in reaching this agreement and the memorandum of understanding.
Earlier today, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia signed agreements to divide the Neutral Zone between both countries and a memo of understanding to resume joint oil production along the border. (end)
