YSU Rector Aram Simonyan welcomed the guests and noted that YSU management attaches great importance to the restoration and development of the cooperation with the University of Kuwait.
Aram Simonyan presented some details of the history, international cooperation, education and scientific processes of YSU, as well as cultural and student life.
Rector of the University of Kuwait Abdul-Latif Ahmad Al-Bader spoke of his country's main university and expressed confidence that the results of the cooperation between the two universities will be satisfactory.
It should be noted that the cooperation between our universities has a rich history, especially in the area of the Arabic Studies. It is already several years that YSU students receive education in the area of the Arabic Studies at the University of Kuwait.
According to Aram Simonyan, the management of the Kuwait University always speaks with satisfaction about the Armenian students, stressing on the good level of their knowledge and a high level of proficiency in Arabic language.
It is planned to include the fields of natural sciences in the framework of future cooperation: “Departments of natural sciences of the Kuwait University are powerful enough not only regarding the knowledge, but also in terms of laboratory equipment.”
YSU Rector added that the delegation of the Kuwait University is also interested in the exchange programs of students and lecturers.
“The Kuwait University is one of the most powerful education centers in the Arab Gulf countries in terms of human resources and technical equipment. Invited from abroad well-known professors and Nobel laureates deliver lectures at this university, where 40,000 students receive education. So, we are interested to strengthen and develop this cooperation, as we will be provided with the opportunity to establish relations with other universities of the Arab Gulf states,” - said Aram Simonyan.
At the end of the meeting the sides exchanged souvenirs and information booklets.
