It was very cheerful along the past two days that you availed us and the Kuwaiti people the opportunity to receive you, and to hold the meetings of the thirtieth session of the Supreme Council of the GCC countries in your second country Kuwait, where you were, and will always remain to be in our hearts.


While concluding the events of the thirtieth session of the Supreme Council of the GCC countries, we thank Allah Almighty for the resolutions and conclusions reached, which would not have been possible without your wisdom and patience, and the spirit of cooperation and understanding you showed, and which we hope shall serve the anticipations of our peoples and be up to their hopes for drawing a better tomorrow and more prosperous future.


Our sincere thanks for all who participated in the preparation for this blessed gathering, particularly to the staff of the general secretariat of the council, headed by His Excellency the Secretary General.


While wishing you a safe and blessed journey, we look forward to our next meeting in the brotherly United Arab Emirates, hosted by our dear brother His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.


Till we meet again on goodness and love.




Assalamu Alikom wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,,,
