Government spokesman and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s envoy, Gholam-Hossein Elham, in a meeting with Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, here Tuesday delivered the written message of Ahmadinejad to him.
At the meeting, Elham underlined Iran’s strategic policy on expansion of cooperation with its neighbors bordering the Persian Gulf and declared the country’s readiness to bolster its relations with regional states in all fields.
“Security, stability and sustainable development in the Persian Gulf area can only be materialized through cooperation among the countries of the region,” he added.
The government spokesman hoped that withdrawal of foreign forces from Iraq and settlement of regional problems will expedite the process of establishment of security in the region.
Elham urged the need to protect Iraq’s unity and territorial integrity and said that security and instability problems there are due to the presence of foreign troops.
For his part, the emir of Kuwait thanked for President Ahmadinejad’s message and referred to his last year visit to Kuwait as a historical event and a turning point in bilateral relations and expressed satisfaction with the growing trend of mutual ties.
Turning to the current regional developments, Sheikh al-Sabah underlined, “These developments proved that difficulties cannot be solved by resorting to weapons and military strategies, rather problems can only be settled through talks.”
Kuwait’s head of state pointed to the Persian Gulf’s God-granted gifts and resources and said that regional countries can prepare the grounds for development of this sensitive region through cooperation with one another.
The Government spokesman arrived in Kuwait Tuesday morning.
