Iran, Kuwait to Cooperate in Judicial Affairs
Iran and Kuwait will cooperate in judicial affairs through an exchange of human resources, said the head of Iran’s judiciary, Ayatollah Mahmoud Shahroudi, on Wednesday.
In a meeting with Kuwaiti Ambassador to Iran Ali Suleyman Al Said, Shahroudi said that there was good opportunity for cooperation with Kuwait in legal affairs through such exchanges, reported the official Iranian news agency, IRNA.
Shahroudi said that Iran and Kuwait “have cultural and religious amity,” and termed Iran-Kuwait relations as strong and significant.
Elsewhere in his talks with the ambassador, Shahroudi called Islamic unity the fundamental requirement of Muslims throughout the world and said that all Islamic states should endeavor to bring about solidarity.
For his part, Said said that Iran and Kuwait had made good progress in forging cooperation in political, economic and cultural fields.
He said that the two countries had signed agreements in health services, labor and human resources training.
The ambassador said that Iranian and Kuwaiti officials had already discussed a platform for cooperation in legal affairs.
He said Kuwait had put forward a draft agreement in this respect and hoped that further consultations would be made to finalize the agreement.
Iran's judiciary is known for its conservative bent, and various pro-reform Iranian MPs have recently stood trial for allegedly slandering religious leaders and other crimes – Albawaba.com
