Kuwait Wants Better Relations

Kuwait Wants Better Relations

The Kuwaiti foreign ministry undersecretary has said the Persian Gulf Arab state is determined to expand its relations with Iran in all areas.

Khalid Suleiman al-Jarallah made the remarks in the first meeting of the Iran-Kuwait joint political committee in Tehran on Monday, in which the latest regional and international developments and bilateral relations were discussed.
The Kuwaiti official highlighted the importance of Iran's role in regional developments and called for "increased cooperation on the issue of terrorism," IRNA reported. In the view of the serious threat posed by the Islamic State (IS) extremist group in Iraq and Syria to the countries in the region, it is necessary that Iran and Kuwait continue consultations and cooperation in this regard, he said.   
Pointing to the invitation by Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah for President Hassan Rouhani to visit the Arab country, Al-Jarallah said the visit would be a "turning point" in the relations between the two countries.
Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, for his part, said the Islamic Republic is ready to enhance relations with Kuwait and implement agreements signed between the two countries.
He said the countries in the region are faced with common threats posed by terrorist groups, including IS.
"Iran has no hesitation in combating terrorism and will not wait for the decisions of the (anti-IS) coalition" that is being built by the United States, he added.
