Iran, Kuwait Keen to Expand Bilateral Ties

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian and Kuwaiti parliamentarians in a meeting in Tehran called for the expansion of bilateral ties and mutual cooperation.

During the meeting in Tehran on Sunday, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and the visiting Head of Iran-Kuwaiti Parliamentary Friendship Group Ahmed Adbulmohsen al-Mulaifi underlined the need for the further expansion of parliamentary relations between the two countries.

During the meeting, the Iranian parliament speaker warned against plots hatched by the enemies to sow discord among Muslim nations.

Al-Mulaifi, for his part, said the Muslim Ummah is going through a sensitive time urging to use wisdom and negotiations in a bid to remove obstacles blocking unity and progress of the Muslim nations.

Al-Mulaifi, heading a high-ranking parliamentary delegation, arrived in Tehran on Sunday to discuss bilateral and regional developments with senior Iranian officials.

Iran and Kuwait have sought to expand bilateral ties through exchanging several high-ranking delegations in the last few years.

Earlier this year, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and his Kuwaiti counterpart Sabah al-Khalid al-Hamad al-Sabah in a meeting underlined the need for further expansion of relations and mutual cooperation between the two countries, specially in parliamentary fields.

They made the remarks in a meeting on the sidelines of the 11th ministerial meeting of the Asian Cooperation Dialogue in the Tajik capital of Dushanbe.

The Iranian and Kuwaiti foreign ministers explored the avenues for bolstering and reinvigoration of bilateral relations.

Salehi termed Iran-Kuwait relations as satisfactory, but meantime demanded the further exchange of high-ranking delegations as well as continued interactions between Iranian and Kuwaiti authorities.

The Kuwaiti foreign minister, for his part, described Iran as a major and influential player in the Middle East region.

Sabah al-Khalid noted that the relations between Iran and Kuwait are based on mutual understanding, interaction and cooperation.
