His Highness the Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah and his accompanying delegation arrived in the Russian city of Sochi on Sunday to hold official talks with President Vladimir Putin.

On arrival, the Emir was received by Minister for the Development of Russian Far East, Alexander Galushka, Sochi Mayor, Anatoly Pakhomov, Kuwait’s ambassador to Russia, Abdulaziz Ahmad Al-Adwani, and officials of the embassy.

Russian diplomats described the Emir’s visit as important to the understanding of the complex issues linking the Middle East and Russia.

“The visit of His Highness the Emir of the State of Kuwait will give a boost to bilateral relations in different spheres,” Peter Stegny, who served as Russian Ambassador in Kuwait, said in a statement.

Stegny further said that the Emir’s summit talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin would be important because of the critical situation in the Middle East and the Arabian Gulf regions, as well as rising threats of extremism.
