WASHINGTON, June 3 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti Ambassador in Canada Reem Al-Khaled has received Canada's Best Ambassador in Middle East award for 2023 in recognition of her efforts over the past three years.
She was given the award during a ceremony organized by University of Ottawa, in association with the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the International Public Diplomacy Council (IPDC), on Friday.
The awarding was based on the fact that Al-Khaled is the first woman of the Middle East and Arabian Gulf region to chair the Women Heads of Diplomatic Missions (WHDMO) in Ottawa, in addition to her continued engagement with youth through her various meetings with Canadian university students, Kuwaiti embassy in Ottawa said in a release.
The ambassador said she was so pleased to have been honored in appreciation of her efforts since she took over as Kuwait's top diplomat in Canada.
She added that she would even exert more efforts in order to further promote and develop distinguished relations between the State of Kuwait and Canada, and to develop people-to-people ties.
She boasted that the embassy had managed to deepen Kuwait's relations with Canada, citing, in this regard, the successful visit paid by Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Salem Adullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to Canada in May.
The visit had witnessed the signing of bilateral cooperation deals and MoUs, and paved the way for broadening the scope of relations between both countries, the ambassador pointed out. (end)
