During a September 12 meeting with Minister of Social Affairs
and Labor Faisal Al-Hajji, the Ambassador again conveyed deep
appreciation for Kuwait's generous donation of $500 million
for hurricane Katrina relief efforts. He noted it was one of
the most generous contributions made and said Americans were
grateful for the support. Al-Hajji replied that Kuwait had a
responsibility to help the U.S. and despite the editorials of
a few fundamentalists, whom he said did not even have the
support of their organizations, most Kuwaitis sympathized
with Americans affected by the storm and backed the GOK
decision to offer assistance.
