Kuwait has land borders with Iraq and Saudi Arabia and water borders with Iran via the Persian Gulf‎

Kuwait is neighboring Saudi arabia and Iraq, the country is smaller in size than all of its neighbors and sometimes smaller than one of their provinces, but its reputation around the world is complex. What are the characteristics of Kuwait that we hear its name from time to time? Residents of the southern cities of our country may know more about Kuwait.

Kuwait is a country in West Asia. Kuwait has land borders with Iraq and Saudi Arabia and water borders with Iran via the Persian Gulf‎. Its capital is the city of Kuwait. The official language of this country is Arabic and its currency is the Kuwaiti Dinar. Of all Kuwaitis, 60% are Arabs and about 38% of Kuwaitis are of Asian descent. 

The people of Kuwait are white and of Semitic descent, and among them are other Arab races such as the Adnan's (the first nomadic group from Najd to this land belonged to the Anza tribe) and the Qahtanis.

The official language of Kuwait is Arabic. In addition, English is now of special importance due to the history of the British presence in this country and also the presence of the United States as a second language.

History of Kuwait:
The date of the founding of Kuwait goes back to Sheikh Barak ibn Gharir al-Hamid, the sheik of the Bani Khalid tribe and the ruler of the Emirate of Ehsa, who at the end of 1110 AH built a fort called Kut to store food and also store weapons, after which Kuwait took its name. And then this city was given to the Al-Sabah family during the time of Sheikh Sa'dun bin Muhammad Al-Hamid. 

Kuwait in ancient times was mostly done by Iranians, especially the people of Bushehr and Khuzestan. At the beginning of the city's growth, several hundred Behbahani families from all walks of life settled in this port.

Kuwait has five provinces in terms of administrative division, each of which is governed by a governor appointed by the emir. These five provinces are Central Province (Al-Asma), Al-Houli Province, Al-Ahmadi Province, Al-Jahraa Province, and Al-Farwaniyah Province.

Kuwait is geographically a small country with an area of ​​more than 17,000 square kilometers. It shares borders with Saudi Arabia and Iraq on land and with Iran by sea.

The climate of Kuwait is not unlike that of the scorching deserts of Saudi Arabia, and in most parts of the country, the climate is very hot and dry. It also has very little access to fresh water.

This has led Kuwait to import many of its food and agricultural products. Even in recent years, the country has supplied part of its drinking water through imports and desalination plants.

Of course, in recent decades, Kuwait has tried to slightly improve its agricultural situation by building greenhouses and changing farmland. Kuwait, despite its small size, is divided into six different provinces: Hooli, Jahra, Asma, Farwaniya, Ahmadi, and Mubarak al-Kabir.

Politically, Kuwait, like other countries in the Persian Gulf‎, is a sheikhdom. However, the political climate in this country is usually more open than in other Persian Gulf‎ countries.

The country gained independence in 1961, and since then several members of the Al-Sabah family have come to power in Kuwait. There is also a parliament in the country that oversees the activities of the government alongside the judiciary.

Historically, the first steps in the establishment of Kuwait were taken by the Al-Hamid and Al-Sabah families. However, Iraq has always made claims to its territory that led to the second Persian Gulf War. Currently, Kuwait is one of the safest countries in the region and has good relations with many countries in the world.
