KUWAIT CITY, March 29: The offshore Al-Durra gas field is purely a Kuwaiti- Saudi field, said Foreign Minister Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Nasser Al-Mohammad Al- Sabah on Tuesday. Iran is not a party in Al-Durra (gas) field for it is purely a Kuwaiti-Saudi field, said the minister in a statement, affirming that only Kuwait and Saudi Arabia enjoy rights in investing in this field according to previously ratified accords between the two sides.

Alluding to some remarks he made during a news conference with the visiting French counterpart, the Kuwaiti minister said that he meant to allude to “negotiations regarding the continental shelf, namely tripartite negotiations involving Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Iran and designed to demarcate the continental shelf among the three states.” (KUNA)
