The Foreign Ministers of Iran, Mohammadjavad Zarif, and Kuwait, Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah, met in Kuwait on Sunday, Fars reports.
Zarif said "We believe that a new era has begun in Iran’s relations with the region, which must turn into a new chapter of friendly relations with attempts by all regional countries.
Pointing out the Iranian president’s stress on healthy relations with neighbor countries, the Foreign Minister said "Besides geographical factors, our religious and cultural intersections tie us together. All the neighbor countries must use the favorable atmosphere.”
"We prefer the neighbors over all because our relations with the neighbors are tight,” Zarif maintained.
Pointing to extremism and tribal sedition as the major challenges facing the area, he added "This is a fire that is not all walled in one place, but will catch the whole area. So it is necessary for us to contain the fire with joint efforts by all regional countries.”
