No Link to 'Terror Cell' Busted in Kuwait

No Link to 'Terror Cell' Busted in Kuwait

A Foreign Ministry official rejected the charge by Kuwait that a recently busted "terror cell" in the Arab country was linked to Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah.
Kuwait charged 26 people on Tuesday with possessing ammunition and smuggling explosives with the intention of carrying out acts of aggression against the Persian Gulf Arab state.
According to Al Jazeera, Kuwait has claimed that the "terror group" has links with two diplomats at the Iranian Embassy.   
Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian dismissed the accusations as baseless and said the incident is a matter of Kuwait's internal affairs and has nothing to do with Iran, Fars News Agency reported on Friday.
The senior diplomat warned that some forces who oppose friendly ties between the two countries are taking actions to undermine the relationship. He noted that it is a high priority for the Islamic Republic to help promote the security of the region, including Kuwait, stressing, "We see Kuwait as a brotherly country. Kuwait's security is our security."  
He expressed hope that the Kuwaiti government would take control of affairs and not allow conspiracies to divide the two Islamic neighbors. Earlier this week, the Iranian Embassy in Kuwait issued a statement, expressing dismay at Kuwait linking the case to Tehran.
The trial of the detainees is expected on September 15 at Kuwait's lower court.
