The Minister valued the honorable positions of the brothers in the State of Kuwait, stressing that they are greater than description in words, and what followed the match with the brotherly Kuwaiti team, will be represented by large work programs between the youth of the two countries in various fields and in a manner that meets the aspirations of the youth of the two brotherly countries.
In a statement to the Kuwaiti media, Darjal said, "We chose the first State of Kuwait in the delegation's visit schedule for several considerations, the most prominent of which is the depth of the historical relationship between the two brotherly countries."
