TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Kuwaiti Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled al-Jarallah said that his country respects territorial integrity of the Islamic Republic and that its foreign policy is based on “non-interference in internal affairs and good neighborliness”.
Kuwait’s foreign policy was “based on respecting the sovereignty and non-interference in internal affairs and good neighborliness,” al-Jarallah told Iran’s Ambassador to Kuwait City Mohammad Irani on Sunday, KUNA reported.
The Kuwaiti official reassured the Iranian diplomat that his country respects the territorial integrity of the Islamic Republic.
The meeting came after Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday summoned Kuwait’s charge d’affaires to Tehran to protest a recent meeting between Kuwaiti officials and a representative of an anti-Iran terrorist group.
Jarallah said the anti-Iran meeting had taken place without permission from relevant Kuwaiti authorities.
Kuwaiti officials, the report added, have “begun taking necessary legal measures” over the “disappointing” affair, which was undertaken in a “private” capacity.
According to reports, the speaker of the Kuwaiti National Assembly, Marzouq al-Ghanim, recently met with a member of the al-Ahwaziya terrorist group on the sidelines of a parliamentary conference calling for the breakaway of the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz from the country.
