Spanish Ambassador Celebrates International Week with AUK

As part of the celebrations of International Week at the American University of Kuwait (AUK), the International Relations Club at AUK invited the Ambassador of Spain to Kuwait, His Excellency Mr. Angel Losada Fernandez, to give a talk about Spain's 50-year long standing relationship with Kuwait. The Ambassador's talk was attended the president of the University, Dr. Nizar Hamzeh, and was open to the members of the AUK community.

Ambassador Fernandez began his lecture by explaining the close historical ties shared between Spain and the Arab world. The 700 years of Arab presence in Spain left a significant impact culturally and linguistically, which has facilitated cross-cultural exchange over the years, and led to opportunities for joint projects. This paved the path for the existing relationship between Kuwait and Spain.

Over the past 50 years, Kuwait and Spain have collaborated in several areas. One of the recent joint projects the ambassador mentioned was the restoration of historical documents for the Spanish library. Kuwait has committed to fund the restoration of some of the historical documents of the Library, which include an old edition of the Holy Quran.

In addition to the existing areas of collaboration, Ambassador Fernandez shared his hopes for expanding Spanish language studies and student exchange programs between Kuwait and Spain in the future, confirming that his country is working towards facilitating procedures to visit to Spain.
