The United States wants that the next strategic dialogue with Kuwait takes place soon, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Arabian Peninsula Affairs Daniel Benaim told reporters on Friday.
“I am sure that the topic will come up and our governments are in constant cooperation and contact about the next dialogue that we hope will be soon,” Benaim said during a press conference.
During the fourth US-Kuwait Strategic Dialogue held in Washington, D.C. in November 2020, the two countries reaffirmed their shared commitment to promote the stability and security of the region.
The US-Kuwait Strategic Dialogue process began in October 2016.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will travel to India and Kuwait on July 26-29 to discuss a host of issues with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and senior Kuwaiti officials, the State Department said earlier on Friday.
Antony Blinken will be joined in Kuwait by Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Joey Hood.
Before flying to Kuwait, Joey Hood will visit Algeria and Morocco.
