While in office, Mubarak sent troops to join a US-led military alliance that liberated Kuwait months after Saddam Hussain’s 1990 invasion of the country.
“The State of Kuwait with its leadership and people, remember with all gratitude and appreciation his [Mubarak’s] historic, firm stances and his pivotal role in forming Arab opposition since the first moments of Saddam’s treacherous invasion of the State of Kuwait,” the Kuwait cabinet said.
“In response to an order from his Highness the Emir of the country, in appreciation of the standing of the late leader and in honour of his memory, the Cabinet has decided to give his name to one of the important landmarks in the State of Kuwait,” it added in a statement without details.
