Kuwait opposes use of force against Iran
Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah says that Kuwait has always opposed the calls to use force against Iran over its nuclear program.
All countries are entitled to access peaceful nuclear technology if they fully cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and other relevant bodies, the Kuwaiti emir told the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine in an exclusive interview.
“Iran, like other countries, has the right to acquire nuclear power for peaceful purposes and use. This right should be done, as in other countries, even within the constraints and limitations of the IAEA,” he added.
“Kuwait urges Iran to show more flexibility towards the West and to continue its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency. Kuwait has always rejected the use of force against Iran,” Sheikh Sabah said.
The Kuwaiti emir also called on all international organizations to join the drive to make the Middle East a nuclear weapons-free zone.
