Iran Keen on Mending Arab Ties

Government Spokesman Mohammad Baqer Nobakht said since the Arab states of the region appear to seek improvement of relations with Iran, the Islamic Republic is also willing to mend ties with them, especially with neighboring countries, so as to help restore peace and stability to the region.
Nobakht made the statements in a press conference in Tehran on Tuesday in response to a question about the contents of the Iranian president's recent letter to Kuwait's emir and the regional status quo, IRNA reported.
President Hassan Rouhani sent a message to Kuwait's Emir Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry announced on Monday, but did not reveal details.
The Kuwait foreign minister in late January visited Tehran, followed by Rouhani's short trip to Kuwait and Oman.  
Nobakht referred to Iran's recent contacts with (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council members, saying that "the [P]GCC states have sought improvement of relations".
"The Islamic Republic's response to the call is positive, as we have always been keen on preservation of peace and stability between neighboring countries, especially with regard to Persian Gulf states," he said.
Nobakht noted that closer relations between Iran and its Persian Gulf Arab neighbors are possible, if members of the Arab bloc show a change of attitude toward Iran and rectify their approach.
In spite of the fairly good and lasting relations between Iran and Oman, Iran and several Persian Gulf Arab states, particularly Saudi Arabia, are at odds with Tehran over various conflicts in West Asia.
