Iran, Kuwait Urge Return to Right Path

Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Alaeddin Boroujerdi held discussions with Kuwaiti National Assembly speaker Jassim al-Kharafi in Kuwait City on Tuesday on ways to settle the ongoing situation in ties between the two countries.

“With regard to Iran's policy, which is based on the expansion of ties with neighboring Arab states in the Persian Gulf, we seized the opportunity of the visit to Kuwait to exchange views with the Kuwaiti parliament speaker,” Boroujerdi told IRNA on Wednesday.

He added that both sides highlighted the significance of putting an end to ambiguities in Tehran-Kuwait City ties.

He noted that Kuwait had closed a case about the “old story” of espionage allegations against Iran and pointed out, “Now that the issue is raised again, it is an indication of a politically-motivated move which will not help the two countries to improve relations.”

“We asked al-Kharafi that Iran's new ambassador will come to Kuwait and Kuwait's ambassador to Tehran will resume his work and that the two countries will put the political ties again on the right track,” the Iranian lawmaker said.

He noted that both sides agreed that the current conditions of political ties between Iran and Kuwait should change.

Boroujerdi warned against the policies of the United States and Britain to undermine the relations between Iran and regional states, saying their moves pursues the objectives of selling more arms and establishing bases in the region.

He called on officials of the two countries to exchange visits and play a constructive role in bolstering relations.

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

Kuwait expelled the Iranian diplomats of the Iranian Embassy in Kuwait City on April 2, 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 said earlier claims that a spy network linked to Iran was operating in the country were dismissed by a number of Kuwaiti officials.
