Prince Charles meets Kuwait emir and businessmen

Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Tuesday met Britain's Prince Charles, who is on a two-day official visit to the oil-rich Gulf state, the official KUNA news agency reported.

The two men underscored the depth of the historical relations between the two countries and vowed to work to further develop their ties, KUNA said.

The heir to the British throne, who arrived in Kuwait late Monday, also met with British and Kuwaiti business leaders taking part in a three-day energy conference organised by MEED.

Prince Charles' visit is to mark Kuwait's 50th anniversary of independence from Britain and 20th anniversary of liberation from Iraqi occupation.

The prince will also visit Qatar.
