Kuwait Upbeat on Iran-Arab Ties Kuwait Upbeat on Iran-Arab Ties

Kuwait voiced optimism over the prospects of better relations between Iran and Persian Gulf Arab states following a recent visit to Tehran by the Kuwaiti foreign minister who delivered an important message to the Islamic Republic. On Friday, Kuwait’s al-Rai newspaper quoted Kuwaiti Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled al-Jarallah as saying that Tehran has announced its readiness for detente in ties with Persian Gulf Arab states, Press TV reported.   The remarks came days after Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah traveled to Tehran, bearing a letter from the country’s emir on behalf of the Persian Gulf littoral states, which are apparently seeking to fix ties with Tehran.   The visit was the first by a senior official from the region since early 2016, when ties between Iran and several Arab states suffered amid the confrontational approach taken by the new Saudi rulers toward Iran.  Jarallah said the letter contained principles of potential joint negotiations, adding that it can pave the way for improvement of Iran’s relations with other Persian Gulf nations.
