Speech of His Highness Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah at the lunch banquet held in honor of Her Excellency Madam Martine Moreau, Ambassador of Canada on the occasion of the end of his mission in Kuwait  
  08th August 2018  

Her Excellency MadamMartine Moreau,

Ambassador of Canada t the State of Kuwait,

Ladies and Gentlemen,


It’s my pleasure to welcome you today to celebrate the presence of Her Excellency the Ambassador among us, but at the same time, we regret that she is leaving us, after having represented her country, her people and her government in Kuwait in the best way. I have noticed through her work that she has deployed every effort to develop the commercial, economic and cultural relations between our two countries, and I think that her efforts will bear fruit in the future. We wish her every success in her future missions, given that travel and constant change of residenceare the fate of diplomats and their families,but good memories are the best impact a person can leave behind after leaving the place.


Madam Ambassador,


Canada is a friendly state that has shown its sincere friendship to us through its honorable positions during the Iraqi occupation of our country; it confirmed and proved its position when it joined the international coalition formedin order to liberate Kuwait. I personally expressed the gratitude of the State of Kuwait, at the level of leadership, government and people, during my official visit to Canada in September 2011, when I met with the former Canadian Prime Minister, Mr. Stephen Harper and the former governor general of Canada, David Johnston. I assured them that these positions will remain in the memory of the future generations of the Kuwaiti people, and that we will always remain faithful to our friends who supported us during our hardship.


Madam Ambassador,


I repeat to you the same message that I conveyed to the leaders of Canada during my official visit, and I assure you that by your departure we will lose a dear friend of Kuwait. You will always be welcome if you or your family decide to visit Kuwait one day, and I wish you all the best in your future missions.


Thank you
