Indian Ambassador to Kuwait Amb Sibi George met Kuwait’s National Security Bureau President Sheikh Thamer Al-Ali Al-Sabah on Wednesday, October 14. The Indian embassy in Kuwait, in a tweet, said the two leaders discussed inter alia bilateral relations, as well as ways of strengthening the existing cooperation between both the nations.
India-Kuwait relations are at their all-time high. While Kuwait houses a large Indian diaspora community and is the source for 10-12% of India’s oil imports, India, on the other hand, is among the Arab nation’s largest trade partners. Indians in Kuwait remit over $3 billion annually and the gulf nation is home to 300 Indian associations and 18 CBSE affiliated Indian schools.
Earlier last week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the new emir of Kuwait Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah along with Sheikh Mishaal al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah who took charge as the crown prince of the country.
