Background: Shaik Hamad Ben Issa Al-Khalifeh, the Crown Prince of Bahrain...who is also Head of his country's Defence Force....arrived in Kuwait on (25th May) for a three-day visit.
The Crown Prince headed a high-level delegation from Bahrain, and was greeted at the Kuwait airport by his counterpart in Kuwait, Crown Prince Shaik Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber who is also Prime Minister.
Following the usual round of introductions to government officials both leaders reviewed a Guard of Honour before the playing of the National Anthems of both States.
After his arrival Shaik Hamad told a press conference he was glad to visit Kuwait in such a momentous time in its history, and planned to acquaint himself with the various phases of advancement which the country had achieved in all fields of human activity under the patronage of the Emir (Shaik Sabah As-Salem As-Sabah). He also expressed his country's thanks for the support Kuwait had given its sister state Bahrain, describing it as a great example of Arab unity.
