Iran is 'true enemy' of Gulf Arabs: Kuwaiti MP

A senior Kuwaiti lawmaker on Sunday described Iran as the “true enemy” of Sunni-ruled Gulf Arab states, in a sign of growing tensions with the Shiite power. “It has become clear to all that Iran is an enemy plotting to swallow up our states and resources and is the true enemy of the region,” Hamad al-Harashani, the head of the Kuwaiti parliament’s foreign relations committee, said in a statement. It was the strongest Kuwaiti criticism in years of Iran, with which Kuwait has traditionally had better ties than its fellow Gulf Arab states.
