Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani says Iran and Kuwait should improve their relations in different areas, given their “enormous” cultural and historic ties.
“Such cultural and historical bonds can pave the way for further cooperation between the two countries,” Larijani said in a meeting with Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah in Kuwait City on Tuesday.
He added that Iran and Kuwait have “very good” parliamentary exchange.
Crisis of terrorism
Meanwhile, in another meeting with Kuwaiti intellectuals and writers on Tuesday, Larijani said regional countries should take the crisis of terrorism seriously.
The Iranian Majlis speaker added that certain countries seek to hatch plots among regional countries and do not take any interest in close relations among them.
He also urged regional countries to make proper use of their great potential to improve their economic cooperation.
“Since the victory of the Islamic Revolution (in 1979), the Islamic Republic of Iran has always been keen on expanding friendly cooperation with regional countries,” Larijani said.
Iran’s Majlis speaker emphasized that Tehran passes on the message of peace and friendship to countries in the region.
Larijani arrived in Kuwait on Monday at the invitation of his Kuwaiti counterpart Marzouq al-Ghanim. During his two-day visit, he is scheduled to hold talks with the country’s senior officials. He will then set off for Qatar.
