“We have historical and common interests with Kuwait and grounds are prepared for the expansion of relations,” Dr.Rouhani added.
Dr.Rouhani added there are many capacities in the way of economic relations between the two countries but, unfortunately, current economic ties level is not adequate.
Referring to government plans to create investment opportunities in Iran, Dr.Rouhani said that in southern area of Iran, including Abadan and Khorramshahr, cities close to Kuwait, there are many grounds for investment by Kuwaiti public and private sectors.

President said: “The relations between the two countries should be enhanced as much as possible; in fact there is no obstacle and limit to the expansion of economic, political and cultural ties between the two states.”
Political intention of both countries officials is in direction of expansion and deepening of all-out ties, so senior officials should have a plan for developing relations, said President Rouhani.
He continued that Iran and Kuwait have close and common views on regional and international political issues, adding that the Middle East region has been facing many problems in the past years, but we are glad that today we are witnessing a relative stability in the countries of the region.
Undoubtedly, stability and security in the region are the first conditions for development of relations and cooperation between countries of the region.
President Rouhani called radicalism and violence among important elements of instability and existing security problems in the region and stressed that we have to fight against radicalism and terrorism together and try to strengthen unity among Islamic umma.

President by referring to Iranˈs readiness to develop relations with members of Persian Gulf Cooperation Council ( PGCC) in direction of settling existing problems said that removing regional problems depends on cooperation between Iran and Iraq and their participation in decision making, because if we want more security in the Persian Gulf, all littoral states should stay with each other to achieve determined goals.
President Rouhani also underlined necessity of interaction and cooperation between littoral states of the Persian Gulf in the field of environmental problems and using resources of the Persian Gulf.
Expressing Iranˈs serious concern over terrorism in the region, Dr.Rouhani said that we believe all countries should try together to fight terrorism and Iran is ready to assist every country, which intends to confront with terrorism.
