Iran president holds phone call with Kuwait’s new emir

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi held a telephone conversation with the new Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Mishal Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, expressing hope that relations between the two countries would expand further under his rule.

Amid the Israeli regime’s ongoing war against the Gaza Strip, Raisi considered the issue of Palestine to be the “most essential” issue of the region and the entire world.

“The Islamic Republic is prepared to cooperate with other countries towards restoration of the Palestinian nation’s legitimate rights,” he added.

The Israeli regime began the war on October 7 following an operation staged by Gaza’s resistance movements. More than 20,000 people, most of them women and children, have been killed since the onset of the Israeli military campaign.

The Iranian president expressed gratitude towards the Kuwaiti emir over his country’s support for the Palestinian nation’s rights, and its opposition to normalization of relations with the “bogus and occupying Zionist regime”.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Raisi said the Islamic Republic’s policy revolved around fortification and expansion of relations with the country’s neighbors.

In the same context, the Iranian president stressed that “integrity, cooperation, and synergy” among neighbors was the only means of resolution of the regional issues and provision of collective interests, considering foreign presence in the region to be a source of problem.

For his part, the Kuwaiti official stated his country’s position concerning the need for restoration of Palestinians’ rights was “constant and unchangeable.”

He voiced hope that the regional problems be resolved as soon as possible and peace, stability, and security be established across the region.
