H.H. the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani congratulated H.H. Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Kuwait's Emir, on the occasion of taking the oath of office, wishing him all success and prosperity for people of Kuwait.

Kuwait's new Emir was sworn in at parliament today as the country prepared to lay to rest late ruler H.H. Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, who helped steer the Gulf state through some of the most turbulent decades.

Earlier, the cabinet of Kuwait named designated successor Crown Prince H.H. Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah as ruler on Tuesday following the death of Sheikh Sabah at 91.

"Our dear nation today faces difficult situations and dangerous challenges that can only be overcome ... by unifying ranks and working hard together," H.H. Sheikh Nawaf told the National Assembly.

The funeral has been restricted to ruling family members due to concerns about coronavirus.
