Tunisian President, Moncef Marzouki (center) meeting with Kuwaiti businessman

Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki met with Kuwaiti businessman and founder of the Al-Babtain Center for Inter-Civilization Dialogue, Abdul Aziz Al-Babtain on Monday morning. The meeting, held at the Presidential Palace covered issues ranging from the economy to culture.

According to the office of the Presidency of the Republic, the Kuwaiti guest expressed his delight over the Tunisian President’s acceptance of his invitation to attend a seminar on the dialogue of civilizations and coexistence between religions that will be held in 2013 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event will be attended by world-renowned theologians, historians, and thinkers in other domains.

The conference will be organized by the Al-Babtain Center, whose mission is to promote dialogue among civilizations and correct misconceptions of Arab-Islamic civilization in the Western world.

The Al-Babtain Center was established in 2005 in cooperation with several Spanish universities and colleges. Al-Babtain himself was born in Kuwait in 1936. He is a prominent Kuwaiti poet and businessman, who is well known in his native country and beyond in the Arabian Gulf and Arab world.

Al-Babtain is not the only high-profile Kuwaiti, who has made an official visit to Tunisia.

Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed, Emir of  Kuwait, recently held talks with the head of the National Constituent Assembly, Mustapha Ben Jaafer. He discussed strategies to ensure economic development in Tunisia and strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries.

During the meeting, Al-Ahmed announced that the Kuwaiti Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED) is willing to study all investment proposals and projects suggested by the Tunisians.
