Military cooperation between Egypt and Kuwait was distinctly evident after the participation of Kuwaiti forces in the 1973 October war in Egypt where the Egyptian and Kuwaiti blood mixed to restore the Arab dignity. The Egyptian army also participated and dedicated many martyrs in the fight against the brutal Iraqi aggression in the Kuwaiti liberation war in 1990.
The joint military commission exerts efforts through regular periodical coordination meetings to enhance bilateral cooperation. The Kuwaiti-Egyptian military relations recently enjoy flourish in the fields of training and education. The Egyptian military institutes and installations host large numbers of Kuwaiti students. Meanwhile, Kuwaiti institutes and military installations also host large numbers of Egyptian students, that is to exchange experiences, visions and ideas in the military field.
In February 2014, the Kuwait House of National Works opened the Egyptian Forces Pavilion, which includes collectibles supplied by the Egyptian Ministry of Defense and military Production, as well as Documents, manuscripts, armor and pharaonic solids, some of which mark Egypt's role during the liberation of Kuwait from the Iraqi invasion. This House deepens the brotherly relations between the two countries in general and the military ones in particular.
The director of the House, Yusuf al-Amiri, said that during his meeting with the then commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces, and Minister of Defense and Military Production, Marshal Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, in Cairo, he asked him to develop the pavilion and modernize it and asked him to set up a Kuwaiti pavilion in the military museum for the Kuwaiti martyrs in 1967 and 1973 wars, which was up to implementation.
President Sisi said that maintaining the security of the Gulf States, including Kuwait, is an unquestionable priority for Egypt and that Egypt will do its utmost to defend and secure her brotherly Gulf countries against any kind of aggression.
