Kuwait Disapproves of Foreign Intervention in Region

Jassem Mohammad Abdulmohsen Al-Kharafi made the remarks during a meeting with Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian parliament, in Kuwait City on Tuesday.

Al-Kharafi stated that the regional countries which have been experiencing pro-democracy protests must exercise self-restraint and should not allow foreigners interfere in their affairs.

He also said that Hezbollah’s resistance against the Zionists is a matter of pride for the Islamic world.

Boroujerdi said, “The situation in the Middle East would not have been so complicated had Saudi Arabia not made a historic mistake by dispatching its troops to Bahrain.”

He also hailed Al-Kharafi’s measures in support of efforts meant to reconstruct Lebanon after the 33-day war in the country.

During the meeting, it was also agreed that the Iranian and Kuwaiti officials make the utmost efforts to find a way out of the problems which have recently arisen between the two countries.

On April 2, Kuwait expelled three Iranian diplomats, alleging that they had links to a spy network.

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

On April 10, Iran also expelled a number of Kuwaiti diplomats in a tit-for-tat move.

Boroujerdi said, “The policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is to increase and develop brotherly relations with regional countries.”

Iran and Kuwait have had “exemplary” relations, and they should promote bilateral cooperation in the future.

In an interview with IRNA correspondent in Kuwait City, Boroujerdi stated that the reason he made the trip was to convey Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani’s message of condolence over the demise of Al-Kharafi’s brother.

Boroujerdi added in line with Iran’s stated policy to develop good relations with the neighboring countries, he took the opportunity to hold bilateral talks with the Kuwaiti parliament speaker and clear up the existing ambiguities.

He also said that during the meeting he asked the Kuwaiti officials to take the necessary measures so that the Kuwaiti ambassador could return to Tehran, the Iranian ambassador could resume his activities in Kuwait, and the two countries could normalize their ties.
