#Iran President to Visit #Oman, #Kuwait
Local Editor

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is to visit Oman and Kuwait Wednesday, state television reported, amid efforts by Kuwait to mend relations between the Gulf Arab states and Tehran.

The Gulf tour comes after Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Sabah visited Tehran last month to deliver a message from the emir on Gulf-Iranian relations.

"Gulf states have a true desire that relations with Iran are normal and based on international law," Sheikh Sabah said at the time, calling for a "normalization of ties and opening dialogue".

Kuwait had sought to maintain relations with Iran. The emir visited Tehran in June 2014.

Oman had always had good ties with Iran. The sultanate is the only one of the six Gulf Arab states not taking part in the Saudi-led military aggression on Yemen.

It played a key role in the negotiations that led to the July 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers, hosting secret talks between Iranian and US representatives.
