Iran, Kuwait stress confronting Takfiri terrorist groups
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Kuwaiti counterpart have stressed the necessity of confronting Takfiri terrorist groups in the Middle East.
Zarif and Kuwaiti First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Sabah al-Khalid al-Sabah made the remarks while discussing regional issues in a meeting in Kuwait on Tuesday.
Iran’s foreign minister is in Kuwait to take part in the 42nd Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
Unconditional Syrian-Syrian and Yemeni-Yemeni talks are required in order to solve the ongoing crises in these countries, said Zarif.
The Kuwaiti official called for supporting Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s government in its fight against ISIL.
The Takfiri militants have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations and crucifixions, in Syria and Iraq, where they control swaths of land.
Saudi Arabia began its war against Yemen on March 26, without out a UN mandate, to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the impoverished country’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Referring to a final nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 countries, the Kuwaiti foreign minister said “this agreement is crucial to stability and security and furthering cooperation in the region.”
On Tuesday, a fresh round of talks between representatives from Iran and the P5+1 countries kicked on in the Austrian capital of Vienna aimed at drafting the text of a final agreement over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
Iran and the P5+1 group – the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany – wrapped up their latest round of talks in Vienna on May 22.
