Barzani Sends Condolences over Passing of Kuwait Emir

ERBIL - Kurdish prominent leader and President of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), Masoud Barzani, has offered condolences on the passing of Kuwaiti Emir Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah.

"On this painful occasion, we extend our warmest and sincere condolences to the honorable Emir family, the government and the people of Kuwait," Barzani said in a statement.

Barzani, who also served as the President of the Kurdistan Region previously, reminded that during al-Sabah's rule, the relations between the autonomous region and Kuwait "were strengthened".

Al-Sabah passed away at the age of 91 in a US hospital on Tuesday, and he was soon succeeded by Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, the son of the tenth Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
