KUWAIT CITY, Dec 17, (KUNA): Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah underlined Saturday Iranian authorities’ compliance over the detention of four Kuwaiti citizens in Iran’s Ahvaz area.
Speaking to Kuwait Radio over the issue, Al-Jarallah hoped that definite outcomes would be reached in the next couple of days, regarding their whereabouts and immediate release.
As soon as it was informed about detention, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs moved immediately and contacted the Kuwaiti embassy in Tehran, which, in turn, communicated with Iranian authorities to find out the whereabouts and fate of the Kuwaiti citizens, he said.
Al-Jarallah quoted the Iranian authorities as having promised to do their utmost to secure their release and safe return.
He added that the Iranian ambassador in Kuwait was summoned on Friday for a meeting with the assistant foreign minister for consular affairs over the fate of the four Kuwaiti citizens.
