Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian emphasized that cooperation among the regional states without the involvement of foreign parties would guarantee peace, stability and progress in the region.
In a telephone conversation with his Kuwaiti counterpart Salem Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Sunday, Amirabdollahian condemned the desecration of the Holy Quran in Sweden and Denmark.
The two senior diplomats underlined the need for the Muslim countries to adopt a decisive stance to condemn and prevent such acts.
Amirabdollahian further appreciated Kuwait’s condemnation of the insult to the Quran in the two European countries and called for an emergency meeting of the foreign ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to send a strong message and condemn the defiling of Islamic sanctities.
The top Iranian diplomat also pointed to good ties between Iran and Kuwait, saying, “We believe that in light of regional cooperation, we can have peace, stability and progress in the region without the presence of foreigners.”
The Kuwaiti foreign minister, for his part, welcomed Amirabdollahian’s proposal to hold an emergency meeting of the OIC, saying the Kuwaiti government strongly condemns any insult to the Holy Quran and Islamic sanctities.
The two sides then exchanged views on the issues of mutual interest.
