Your Highness,  

I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of your dear brother, His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah, and I  particularly wanted to convey my most heartfelt sympathy to Your Highness, your family and to the people of the State of Kuwait at such a very sad time. As a leader, and a humanitarian, the late Amir’s wisdom and commitment to peace and stability were very greatly admired, and I can well imagine how deeply his loss will be felt by so many people. I will always retain the most special and affectionate memories of His Late  Highness, whose kindness to me over so many years will never be forgotten.  

I can only offer Your Highness my renewed condolences, together with  my warmest best wishes, and assure Your Highness of my commitment  to the bonds of friendship and co-operation which have for so long existed between our two countries.
