The US and Kuwait have a “lasting bond of friendship and loyalty,” Kuwait Ambassador to the US Sheikha AI-Zain Al-Sabah said as Washington marked National Memorial Day.
Kuwait News Agency reported on Tuesday that Al-Sabah expressed her “pleasure to be given the opportunity to represent my country” in a ceremony to honor the sacrifices of the US Armed Forces as she addressed the National Memorial Day Parade.
“I stand before you today, representing the good people of my nation and reaffirming that we will never forget the human stories of service and sacrifice as exemplified by the brave men and women of the US armed forces on or off the battlefields,” added the ambassador.
“Trust that we cherish and hold dear the strong and lasting bond of friendship and loyalty between our two nations.”
She added that the bonds between the two countries were “forged by war and strengthened by peace, and further cultivated by mutual trust and respect.”
The diplomat praised the soon to be constructed Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield Memorial, saying: “A special memorial is getting ready to be constructed in the heart of the US capital, Washington, to further commemorate the efforts of American heroes,” which is scheduled to be unveiled in 2025.
