KUWAIT, Jan 5 (KUNA) -- Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Sulaiman Al-Jarallah summoned here on Tuesday Iran's Ambassador here Ali Reda Enayeti and handed him a written protest note on the backdrop of the attacks on Saudi Arabia's Embassy in Tehran and its Consulate in Mashhad.
Al-Jarallah said in the protest note that such action by Iran constituted a flagrant violation of international conventions and norms.
The protest note reiterated condemnation of the State of Kuwait of the flagrant violations, stressing the need for Iran's respect of its international commitments towards the accredited diplomatic missions and safeguarding their staff.
Al-Jarallah pointed out that the note also included an assertion of Iran's responsibility to fully protect the foreign diplomatic missions in accordance with the international conventions regulating diplomatic and consular ties based on respect of sovereignty of states and non-interference in their internal affairs, a principle he said would guarantee peace and security in the region and contributes to the consolidation of efforts aimed at building confidence among nations and goes in harmony with the resolution issued by the UNSC this morning in this regard.
Al-Jarallah asserted Kuwait's supportive stance with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in all measures taken in this regard to safeguard its security and stability.(end) tg
