While Kuwait has agreed to the new appointment of the Iranian ambassador who will replace Ali Reza Enayati, it reaffirmed on Thursday that it would not appoint an ambassador to Tehran in return until Iran changes its approaches and policies in the region.

Assistant Foreign Minister for Asian Affairs Ali Al-Saeed announced that Kuwait approved the new Iranian ambassador’s nomination, clarifying in response to a question regarding the return of the Kuwaiti ambassador, Magdi al- Dhafiri, to Iran that “the situation will remain as is until Iran changes its policies.”

He also said that “the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Sheikh Sabah al-Khalid and Deputy Foreign Minister Khalid al-Jarallah stressed, on more than one occasion, that Iran should take concrete steps to changing its policies and playing a positive role in the region.”
