Egypt has declared three days of mourning starting Tuesday for Kuwait's emir Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who died earlier today at the age of 91.
In a statement by the presidency spokesman Bassam Rady, Egypt mourned the death of Kuwait's emir saying "The Arab and Islamic nations have lost a great leader of a unique calibre after a life full of benevolence and achievements to serve his people and his Arab and Islamic nation and support its causes," the statement added.
"Egypt, in these painful circumstances, recalls with full gratification and appreciation the brotherly stances of emir Sabah and his prominent landmark work in the renaissance of Kuwait and the Islamic and Arab nations. He was a wise leader who devoted his life to serve his people, nation, and the whole of humanity," the statement added.
"His actions and achievements will remain deeply-rooted in conscience and will keep him a role model in leadership, generosity and bounteousness," it added.
The statement added that Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi expressed his condolences on behalf of the Egyptian people and government over the passing of the Kuwaiti leader.
