Celebrating 60 years of U.S.-Kuwait Diplomatic Relations
September 23, 2021

On September 23rd, 2021, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United States of America and Kuwait.

The iconic Kuwait Towers were illuminated with our national colors, in a beautiful display representing the friendship between our countries.

We invited Kuwaiti alumni of exchange programs between Kuwait and the U.S. to join us for the occasion, because they represent not just the importance of the friendship and partnership between our two countries, but these talented Kuwaitis also represent the great potential of Kuwait and our cooperation together.
