An Iranian official said Sat. that the military aggression waged by Saudi Arabia against Yemeni people had prevented the constructive strategies of Emir of Kuwait from taking effect.

Amir-Abdollahian went on to add, “in my last meeting with the Emir of Kuwait, Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, he expressed constructive views on regional issues which were hindered from making any progress due to Riyadh’s military aggression in Yemen.”
He stressed that expansion of relations with neighboring countries is the top priority of Iran’s foreign policy, adding “the views of the Emir of Kuwait and National Assembly speaker in support of a political solution to current regional crises are fully welcomed by Tehran.”
Amir-Abdollahian highlighted Tehran’s efforts for further development of relations with neighboring countries and Persian Gulf littoral states.
“In such a critical situation in the region, parliamentary diplomacy can play a significant role in improving regional cooperation,” he said.
