Kuwaiti Emir Says Iran Ties Important

“We trust the goodwill and objectives of our brothers in the Islamic Republic and consider relations with Iran important,” the Kuwaiti emir said in a meeting with Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on Wednesday.

Salehi arrived in Kuwait City to hold talks with senior Kuwaiti officials on latest Middle East developments and was welcomed by his Kuwaiti counterpart Sheikh Mohammad Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah upon his arrival.

“Not only people of Kuwait, but also the people of other [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) members have always stressed [the importance of] good relations with the Islamic Republic,” IRNA quoted Al Sabah as saying.

Referring to the latest developments in Bahrain, Salehi urged the withdrawal of foreign forces from the island country, and urged the Manama government to pay attention to popular demands within the framework of political reforms.

“Bahrain does not have a military solution and the continuation of the presence of foreign military forces in this country will only complicate the situation.”

The Iranian foreign minister also described certain misunderstandings in the region as being in line with the objectives of the enemies.

The Kuwaiti emir hailed Salehi's visit to regional countries which will help clear misunderstandings and clarify Iran's stances.

In 2010, Kuwait claimed that a number of its military officers have been gathering intelligence about US military bases in Kuwait and passing it on to Iran.

Late in April, the Iranian Foreign Ministry expressed “dismay” over the remarks made by Kuwaiti officials, and dismissed the allegations as “irresponsible.”

The defendants accused of being members of an espionage ring allegedly linked to Iran denied the charges brought against them in a Kuwaiti court last week, saying their confessions were made under torture.
