KUWAIT CITY, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- Kuwait formed on Tuesday a new government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) said.

Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah received the prime minister, approved the new cabinet formation handed by him, and wished him the best in serving the people of Kuwait, KUNA said.

The emir hoped that the executive and legislative powers would cooperate for the sake of Kuwait's development and welfare, KUNA said.

On Nov. 8, the Kuwaiti government submitted resignation to the emir. On Nov. 14, the emir accepted the resignation. On Nov. 23, Kuwaiti Crown Prince Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah issued an order on behalf of the emir to appoint Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah as prime minister and assign him to form a government.

Kuwait experiences frequent cabinet reshuffles.
