Tehran, YJC. President Rouhani says Iran is ready to cooperate with neighbor states to help regional peace and stability.

Presiden Hassan Rouhani in meeting with the Kuwaiti Emir Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Sunday said "We believe that regional stability is attained only with the cooperation of regional countries. The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to engage in cooperation with the entire regional countries, Kuwait in particular, to help improve the area’s security and stability.”

Counting extremism and violence as main factors creating an insecure atmosphere he said "We all have to take each other’s hands and fight extremism and terrorism and to help improve unity among the Islamic nation.”

Expressing discontent over the current economic cooperation between Iran and Kuwait, Rouhani pointed to Iran’s plan to create opportunities for foreign investors and said "There are many opportunities for entrepreneurs to invest in Iran’s western areas such as Abadan and Khorramshahr which are near Kuwait.”

Also pointing to Iran’s willingness to act in cooperation with neighbors to fight regional afflictions, the President stated "Resolving the regional security issues is contingent upon cooperation between Iran and Iraq and their joint decision-making. If we seek better security over the Persian Gulf all the states situated by the Persian Gulf have to stand by each other so that they would be able to reach their goals.”

The Emir of Kuwait in turn expressed delight over his trip to Iran and said "The trip is not over for me as long as the two countries’ officials do not make agreements. We have made the trip with the objective that officials from both sides may reach agreement on further cooperation.”

Also stressing joint effort to fight regional concerns he said "All the Islamic countries must work side by side to help integrity among themselves.”
