I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing away of His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. (Inna lillah wa inna elahi rajeun). On behalf of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh and Bangladesh community in Kuwait and I the ambassador of Bangladesh to Kuwait, on my own behalf express my sincere and deepest condolences to the Government and people of State of Kuwait on his sad demise. His Highness played a central role for newly independent Bangladesh to get recognition from Arab countries after liberation.
Bangladesh has lost a cherished friend and will always value His Highness’ personal contribution to strengthening of the close relationship between Bangladesh and State of Kuwait. He was a great leader and statesman.
Throughout his life, His Highness had been a unifying figure who guided the people of State of Kuwait with grace and compassion. The people of Bangladesh, who have long admired his charismatic and humanitarian personality, share the grief of the people of Kuwait.
