Salehi arrived in Kuwait on Wednesday for talks on bilateral, regional and international matters.

In early April, Kuwait expelled three Iranian diplomats it accused of espionage. Iran in response expelled "several" Kuwaiti diplomats.

During the meeting Salehi stressed that the situation in Bahrain has no military solution and criticized Bahrain's violent treatment with popular demands.

"There is no military solution regarding Bahrain and continuous presence of foreign forces in the country has made it more complex," Iranian top diplomat said.

Salehi then stressed necessity of withdrawal of foreign forces from Bahrain.

Kuwaiti Emir on his part expressed appreciation over Salehi's trip to regional countries including Kuwait to settle misunderstandings and make clear position of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

"Relation between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Kuwait is the best one," he said adding nations of Kuwait and Persian Gulf states are pursuing friendly ties with Iran.
