Kuwait's acting charge d'affaires in Jakarta Nasser Al-Khaldi said in remarks to KUNA by phone on Tuesday that that Kuwaiti delegation took part early yesterday in the ministerial meeting of the conference in preparation for the Asian-African summit that will kick off tomorrow in commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the Asian-African Conference and the 10th Anniversary of the New Asian-African Strategic Partnership (NAASP).
 
This conference comes to boost cooperation between the developing countries besides reviving the new strategic Asian-African partnership, as well as declaring the African-Asian support to Palestine, he said.
 
Kuwait's participation in this event reflects its belief in the importance of the cooperation and coordination between the nationals of the Asian and African continents, Al-Khaldi affirmed.
 
Kuwait is a pioneer in offering initiatives to improve ties with a large number of Asian and African countries, as it held a number of conferences on that matter, he added.
