Kuwait City, June 21, IRNA - Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah al-Salim al-Sabah on Wednesday hailed Iran's stance on its probe into an attack on a Kuwaiti diplomat in Tehran.
Third secretary of Kuwait Embassy in Tehran Mohammad al-Zubi was attacked by unknown men on Tuesday for unidentified reasons.
A statement issued by Iran's Foreign Ministry on the event was an appropriate step for proper settlement of the case, the Kuwaiti minister told reporters.
He expressed hope Iran would adopt measures to check recurrence of such incidents in the future.
He called on Tehran to conduct research to investigate the case and bring the assailants to justice.
Al-Sabah said his country believes those who had hands in the event intended to undermine ties between the two countries and damage Iran's ties with Arab states.
He stressed that Kuwait does not intend to recall its diplomats from Tehran.
Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini on Wednesday expressed regret over a physical assault on the Kuwaiti diplomat, saying, "We are probing into details of the event." "Immediately after the incident, we made necessary efforts and measures.
"The Iranian and Kuwaiti officials have a resolve to expand amicable ties and will not let such events affect mutual relations," he added.
Speaker of Kuwait's Majlis Al-Umma (National Assembly) Jasem al-Kharafi Wednesday night appreciated stance by Iranian officials and their willingness to consolidate ties with Kuwait.
He expressed confidence that Iranian officials would not let others damage relations between their country and the friend countries.
