Kuwait celebrated its 61st National Day at Expo 2020 Dubai on Friday with a flag-raising ceremony, speeches and cultural performances at the Al Wasl Stage of Nations, emphasising its Vision 2035 for a sustainable future.
The celebrations will start in Mileiha and continue to the central cities, the Eastern Region and Al Hamriyah, concluding at Sharjah National Park, he added, pointing out that the committee is keen to hold the events on a sequential basis, so the public can attend them all.
The carnival event included interesting shows on land and air, reflecting the celebration in this special occasion and the community interaction with the national and community events organised by the Ministry of Interior and Sharjah Police.
Later this year, the Opportunity Pavilion will become the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum, a new addition that highlights the history and impact of the international exhibition, and celebrates the success of the event.
Dr Ahmed Al Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al Azhar, Chairman of the Muslim Council of Elders, asked Allah Almighty to continue blessing the United Arab Emirates with peace, security, and prosperity.
The celebrations were attended by the Centre's staff and a broad multicultural segment of the mosque's worshippers and visitors, which reflected the rich Emirati heritage and noble values, and highlighted the mosque's message that calls for cross-cultural dialogue worldwide.
"I commend the United Arab Emirates for the historic cooperation with Israel forged over the past two years through the Abraham Accords," said Antony Blinken, US Secretary of State, in a press statement on Friday.
