TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi reiterated the country’s unwavering policy to establish friendly relations with neighboring countries.
Speaking on Friday in response to a question about recent positive remarks made by the Kuwaiti parliament speaker on Tehran-Kuwait City relations, Qassemi said, “Undoubtedly, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s foreign policy priority is having the best relations with neighbors and regional countries.”
Iran and all of its neighboring countries have numerous capacities to boost cooperation in line with the policy of “good neighborliness, political partnership economic development and the fight against common threats”.
Based on its unchanging and principled policy, Iran will be always after stability, security and the progress of its neighboring nations, he noted.
In an interview with Qatari daily Al Sharq published on Wednesday, Kuwait’s National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Ali al-Ghanim had said that “Kuwait and all (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council ([P]GCC) states are willing to create a calm atmosphere and to enjoy good neighborly relations with Iran.”
He added that all the countries and Iran are equal partners in this region.
