Al-Ghanim reasserts Kuwaiti-Saudi ties.

(With PARL-LEAGUE-CONFERENCE) CAIRO, May 31 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim underscored on Tuesday "the distinguished and historic" relations binding Kuwait and Saudi Arabia under the wise leaderships of both countries. He made that affirmation to KUNA after meeting with his Saudi counterpart President of the Shura Council Abdullah Al Sheikh, on the sideline of their participation in the 3rd Conference of the Arab Parliament, dealing this time with issues regarding childhood in the Arab world. Speaker Al-Marzouq said that work between the two countries on vital bilateral issues have been ongoing admirably and will continue in that manner in the future. Asked if the meeting with his Saudi counterpart dealt with condemning Iran for trying to politicize the Hajj pilgrimage this year, Al-Ghanim said " this issue and other bilateral ones were discussed between us." He added that "what affects Saudi Arabia affects Kuwait as well as all the Gulf countries; this is totally axiomatic." On his part President of the Shura Council Abdullah Al Sheikh praised in a statement to KUNA after meeting with his Kuwaiti counterpart the energy and enthusiasm Speaker Al-Ghanim exudes in parliamentary meetings and at official occasions. Al Sheik noted that Al-Ghanim's energy, enthusiasm, and hard work "are of benefit to our faith, our nations and all world countries that seek peace and amity for the human race, including GCC and Arab countries."
