President M Abdul Hamid expressed deep sorrow and shock at the death of Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah.
In a condolence message, the President said, Kuwait’s Emir played a very significant role in the development of bilateral ties between Bangladesh and Kuwait.
Sheikh Sabah, the architect of Kuwait’s modern foreign policy, was the country’s Foreign Minister for about 40 years from 1963 to 2003. He had been the Emir of Kuwait since 2006.
He died at 91 at a United States hospital around 8 pm (Bangladesh time) on Tuesday. Sheikh Sabah was born in 1929.
The head of the state prayed for eternal peace of the departed soul and conveyed deep sympathy to the bereaved family.
