Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi says a safe and developed region is achievable only through cooperation and partnership among all regional states.
He described as positive the latest remarks by Kuwaiti Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad during the opening ceremony of an investment forum in Kuwait.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always put establishment of [good] relations with its neighbours on top of its foreign policy agenda,” he told IRNA.
He added Iran maintains that a safe, strong and developed region is possible only through cooperation and partnership among all regional states.
“In today’s interconnected world, prosperity, development and economic progress of the region can be achieved only by adopting collective mechanisms and tackling problems through dialogue and partnership among all regional states.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always been prepared to tread on this path,” he concluded.
Qassemi’s remarks came after the Kuwaiti official described Iran and Iraq as two important countries in the region, and said having normal relations between them and [P]GCC member states is a component of security and stability in the region.
