Turkish President Abdullah Gul is due to arrive in Kuwait on Tuesday on a three-day official visit during which he would hold talks with His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

On Sunday, Gul told a visiting delegation of Kuwaiti chief editors in Turkey that developing relations with Kuwait is a top political priority for Ankara. "I am a friend to GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries. I always pushed for strengthening ties with the Council and Kuwait in particular due to the significance of the relationship for both sides," Gul told the Kuwaiti delegation.

"This is my third visit to Kuwait as a president since 2007 and it would be an opportunity to review bilateral relations in light of accelerating developments, both regionally and internationally.

"It will also be an opportunity to consult with His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on those developments," he noted.
