Kuwaiti Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled al Jarallah said on Monday that Egyptian-Kuwaiti coordination is ongoing to determine the date of a joint committee meeting.

"The Egyptian-Kuwaiti Committee is an effective mechanism for developing bilateral ties," he elaborated in exclusive statements to MENA.

He said that the planned meeting will take up several important issues and a number of prospective agreements and memorandums of understanding.

Jarallah praised the deep-rooted ties between the two sisterly countries.

As for the latest updates on a US-proposed idea of creating a “Middle East Strategic Alliance" also dubbed the "Arab Nato", Jarallah noted that the matter is still under discussion among the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, Egypt and Jordan.
