In a telephone conversation, Zarif and Sabah also exchanged views about the latest developments in the Middle East and world, Kuwait’s local media reported.  

Zarif made the phone call to express Iran’s gratitude to the Kuwaiti government and people for their assistance to Iranian flood victims. 

Kuwait sent a second batch of humanitarian aid for the survivors of the recent deadly flash floods in Iran that continue to cause heavy damage in the southwest.

Record spring rainfall that has battered Iran in the past weeks caused serious flooding in many areas, mainly the provinces of Golestan, Lorestan, Khuzestan, Fars and Ilam, forcing thousands to leave their homes.

While residents in some western areas are still in need of relief aid, the Army Ground Force, the IRGC, and Basij have deployed forces, heavy military machinery, aircraft and boats to the disaster zones.

The death toll in the disaster has reached 67.
