(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Kuwait has held talks with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in preparation of opening a bureau of the organization in Kuwait and employing Kuwaiti nationals

The discussions, held here, involved Chairman of Kuwait's Public Authority for Agriculture affairs and Fish Resources Jassem Al-Bader, accompanied by the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Italy Sheikh Ali Al-Khaled Al-Sabah, with FAO Director General Jos{ Graziano da Silva. The meeting was held on sidelines of a FAO ministerial conference that convened in Rome late on Thursday



In remarks to KUNA, Al-Bader said he discussed with the FAO Chairman results of his successful visit to Kuwait, last January, and the agreement that had been inked, stipulating establishment of the first Kuwait-FAO partnership and contact office in the country



The accord was signed by the two sides in 2013, with aim of regulating mutual technical cooperation and employment of the international agency expertise

PAAFR completed, according to up-to-date criteria, constructing and equipping the FAO bureau in Kuwait and the authority dispatched six national cadres to the FAO headquarters in Rome to train on operating it and working as coordinators with the diverse departments of the organization



Al-Bader said the FAO chief has expressed admiration for "speedy and qualitative accomplishment" of establishing the bureau and affirmed readiness to inaugurate it during his planned visit to Kuwait in November

He indicated that a five-year action plan, encompassing 33 projects, is to be executed, in the preliminary phase of the bureau tasks



The PAAFR chief added that he agreed with da Silva to select a number of skilled Kuwaiti citizens to work in the FAO headquarters, the regional offices in Cairo and Abu Dhabi -- the first such accord to be reached since Kuwait joined the organization
