Kuwait celebrates 55th Independence Day

On 19 June, 1961, after more than six decades of being a British Protectorate, the 11th ruler of Kuwait and ‘Father of Independence and Constitution’, the late Amir Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah signed the independence document in the presence of the then British commissioner for the Arabian Gulf Sir George Middleton, who represented Her Majesty’s Government.
