Iran, Kuwait Seek Expansion of Ties

Service : Politic

Iran, Kuwait Seek Expansion of Ties

He also lashed out against fiendish plots to disrupt relations between the two Muslim nations.

Al-Kharafi, for his part, said that certain states do not welcome further expansion of brotherly ties between Kuwait and Iran. He expected the two states to reinforce their sense of intimacy much more than before.

On April 9, the Islamic Republic of Iran expelled three Kuwaiti diplomats in retaliation for the Persian Gulf emirate's decision to expel three Iranian diplomats.

A week earlier, Kuwait had expelled three Iranian diplomats of the Iranian Embassy in Kuwait City, alleging that they had links to a spy network.

Kuwait claimed that a number of its officers have been gathering information about the US military bases in Kuwait and passing it on to Iran, an allegation that the Islamic Republic has rejected as baseless.

Tehran says earlier claims that a spy network linked to Iran was operating in the country were dismissed by a number of Kuwaiti officials, including the parliament speaker, a year ago and the fact that the issue has been brought up again after a year raises questions.

A member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis), Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, said in early April that Kuwait's claim that it has dismantled an Iranian spy cell is a US plot devised to legitimize the current crackdown on popular movements in the region.

Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates have deployed troops to Bahrain to assist Bahraini forces in their crackdown on anti-government demonstrations.

Scores of protesters have been killed and many others have gone missing since the beginning of the Bahraini revolution.
