Sheikh Sabah Khaled al-Hamad al-Sabah, Foreign Minister of Kuwait, opposed the meddling of the Iranian regime in countries in the region and considered the Iranian regime’s nuclear program to be a matter of grave concern to them.
Fars News Agency, affiliated with IRGC, reported on Monday, January 6, that during a visit from the Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi from Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Khaled al-Hamad al-Sabah, the foreign minister of this country, declared in an interview with Egyptian reporters that “Iran should describe the nature of its program to the International Atomic Energy Agency, especially since Kuwait is threatened by any nuclear radiation from Iran and is worried about pollution of Gulf waters.” He called on the international community to take note of the Iranian regime’s nuclear program and stated that Kuwait and other Gulf countries, as well as the United States, are concerned about the outcome of this program on Arab countries in the Gulf.
Twenty months ago, prior to the earthquake in Bushehr, there was an urgent meeting in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, where the Gulf states voiced their grave concern for the perils of nuclear radiation from the Bushehr nuclear plant and requested a quick dispatch of a group of IAEA experts to inspect the plant for possible damage and to ensure the plant’s safety.
The Kuwaiti Foreign Minister added in this interview: “We oppose any interference by the Iranian regime in the affairs of Arab states in the Gulf.”
Last year, Iranian regime officials attempted to improve their relations with Kuwait to remedy their regional isolation and invited the Amir of Kuwait to Iran. However, the regime’s insistence on attaining nuclear weapons and its meddling in the affairs of countries and the export of terrorism in the region caused the government of Kuwait to once again move away from the Iranian regime.
