KUWAIT: The priority of Iranian foreign policy is to strengthen relations with neighboring countries. “We believe regional countries are able to achieve security and stability through cooperation without the need for foreign forces, as security cannot be imported from abroad. We call on the region’s countries to ensure its prosperity, and any conflict can be resolved peacefully,” said Ambassador of Iran to Kuwait Mohammad Irani during a reception held by the Iranian Embassy on Tuesday to celebrate its National Day and the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
The security and stability of Iran is connected to the security of the region. “The prosperity of any neighboring country – especially Kuwait – is connected to the prosperity of Iran, as it is an important part of this area. For this reason, we are fighting terrorism in Syria and Iraq, and many of our soldiers have died in this war against terrorism. We also collaborate with neighboring countries to fight this phenomenon,” he added.

Bilateral relations between Kuwait and Iran go back many centuries. “We have strong historical, social and geographic relations with Kuwait, and they are getting stronger, especially due to the wise leadership of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah,” Irani said.

“After 40 years, Iran is still challenging the circumstances and the embargo. Iran is considered a developed country in many scientific fields including technology, nuclear energy, space sciences and especially medicine. Today, Iran produces over 90 percent of the medicine to meet local demand. In addition, we produce petrochemical and aluminum products, vehicles, building materials and large ships. Our economy has become very developed on the international level,” concluded Irani.
