The Iranian ambassador, for his part, underlined making maximum efforts during his tenure in Kuwait to promote mutual ties in all fields.
The two sides also reviewed the latest status of bilateral cooperation, especially the ways of providing facilities and visas to Iranian and Kuwaiti nationals.
In this meeting, the Iranian ambassador presented the invitation of Dr. Hossein Amir Abdollahian, Iran’s foreign minister to his Kuwaiti counterpart to visit Tehran.

Iran and Kuwait have been locked in a dispute over the shared Arash gas field in the Persian Gulf. Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have said that has no share in this field while Iran continues to insist that has a share in the field.
Iranian Oil Minister Javad Owji has said recently that Iran has let Kuwait know that it will tap into the Arash gas field even if the Arab country decides to shun cooperation.
Owji warned that Iran will not give up any of its rights when it comes to its rightfully-owned natural resources in the joint field.
