Kuwait–Turkey relations are foreign relations between Turkey and Kuwait. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Turkey describes the current relations as being at "outstanding levels".[1] Bilateral trade between the two countries in 2016 was estimated to be worth around USD700 million by the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister, Mehmet Simek.[2]

The two countries have recently signed fifteen agreements for cooperation in tourism, health, environment, economy, commercial exchange and oil.[3]

When Turkey was struck by an earthquake in 2011, Kuwait donated 250,000 dollars for the victims through the UN Development Programme (UNDP).[4]


Kuwait used to be under Ottoman rule until British conquered Kuwait at 1916.
