Kuwait hails Iran's readiness for dialogue with GCC

Riyadh: Kuwait has welcomed Iran's willingness for dialogue with its Gulf Arab neighbours, saying any talks are likely to help resolve civil wars in Syria and Yemen, according to Kuwaiti state news agency KUNA.
Kuwaiti Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al Jarallah, responding to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif's comments that his country was ready for dialogue with the GCC, said: "It's what we're looking for".
Such a dialogue would "contribute effectively to containment of many areas of tension in the region, whether in Yemen or in Syria or anywhere else in our region," KUNA quoted Jarallah as saying at a reception at the Iran's embassy in Kuwait.
Referring to a letter sent in January to Iran's President Hassan Rouhani by Kuwait's Emir His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah on the "basis for dialogue" between the six-member GCC and Iran, Zarif said Tehran hoped the message would show that Gulf countries were willing "to resolve the issues".
"In that case, Iran is also ready. We should all look forward and agree that we should aim together for a future that looks different," Iran's Ettelaat newspaper quoted Zarif as saying on Tuesday.
