The European Union (EU) and Kuwait signed a Memorandum of Understanding to encourage cooperation between Kuwait and the EU in many areas through the EUs foreign service, called the European Action External Service. The MoU was signed yesterday in Brussels, Belgium by Kuwait’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Ambassador Suleiman Al-Jarallah and EU High Representative Federica Mogherini.

Jarallah explained that this MoU offers Kuwait the opportunity to cooperate with the 28-member European bloc outside the EU, for example to give aid and assistance the EU provides to Africa. “It also gives us the opportunity to cooperate with the EU in areas like energy, investment and in many areas which strengthen the cooperation between Kuwait and the EU,” he said.
