Kuwait’s Consul-General in Guangzhou, China Khalifa Al-Kharafi affirmed Friday his country’s keenness to establish sister city relations with various Chinese town and cities, particularly Guangzhou.

Al-Kharafi made his remarks to KUNA on the sidelines of his participation in a conference marking the 40th anniversary of Guangzhou’s establishment of sister city relationships with several world cities, including Kuwait City.

In 2012, Kuwait signed a sister city agreement with the city of Guangzhou to document and boost cooperation between the two cities, deepen mutual understanding, and strengthen friendship relationship between people of the two nations, he noted.

The Kuwaiti diplomat highlighted history of the Kuwaiti-Chinese relationship and benefits of signing such a twinning agreement with the Chinese port city, which is located in northwest of Hong Kong.

This deal would propel the wheel of joint prosperity and development forward in accordance with principles of equality and mutual benefit, in addition to encouraging bilateral multiform cooperation in economy, trade, modern services, health, education, tourism, environment protection, and planning fields, he added.

Al-Kharafi stressed the importance of bolstering continued communication between Kuwaiti and Chinese officials and bodies in order to facilitate the process of exchanging benefit, especially in issues of mutual interest.

The conference, tagged “hand-in-hand toward a better future”, was organized by Guangzhou government with participation of several representatives of countries that signed, eventually, MoUs for a sister city relationship with Guangzhou.
