Ammon News - Kuwait is celebrating on Saturday its 62nd National Day and the 32nd anniversary of liberation, an occasion during which the emirate reaffirms its achievements throughout its six decades of independence, and the economic and political position it holds in the Gulf, Arab and international map.

The National Day commemorates the creation of Kuwait as a nation in 1961, while Liberation Day marks the end of the Iraqi occupation during the Gulf War in 1991.

Kuwait gained its independence from Britain on June 19, 1961, when late Emir Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Al Sabah, the 11th ruler of the country, signed the Declaration of Independence with the British High Commissioner in the Arabian Gulf Sir George Middleton.

On May 18, 1964, it was decided to change that date and merge it with Feb. 25, which coincides with the anniversary of late Emir Abdullah Al-Salem Al Sabah’s ascension of the throne, in honor of his recognized role in the independence of the country and the consolidation of its democracy.
