Alwaght-Kuwait's emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, has praised Iran’s role in fighting the ISIS Takfiri terrorist group, and the Islamic Republic’s contribution to Iraq’s stability and economic development.
The Kuwaiti emir made the remarks during a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Kuwait City on Wednesday on the sidelines of an ongoing international conference aimed at raising funds for reconstructing Iraq.
Sheikh Sabah also expressed hope that regional countries would resort to talks to settle any possible differences or division between them.
Zarif, for his part, praised bids by the Kuwaiti emir to play a mediating role in regional conflicts, and expressed hope that such efforts would culminate in favorable results.
The two sides also underlined the need for the promotion of ties and direct consultations between the high-ranking officials of the two countries.
The three-day Kuwait International Conference for the Reconstruction of Iraq opened in Kuwait City on Monday with the focus on the reconstruction of Iraq and vital issues concerned following more than three years of war on ISIS that left many parts of the Arab country in ruins.
