Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has underscored the necessity of establishing peace and stability in the region, PRESS TV reported.
The Iranian president made the remarks in a meeting with Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah in Tehran on Sunday, saying, "Undoubtedly, the security and stability of the region is the first condition for the expansion of relations and cooperation among countries."
Referring to problems in some regional countries particularly Syria and Iraq, Rouhani said, "All regional countries should help for the establishment of peace and security in these regions."
Rouhani further stated that extremism and violence are among the reasons behind the destabilization of the region, saying all regional states should join forces to "fight terrorism and extremism" and try to strengthen the unity among Muslim nations.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to interact and cooperate with all regional countries, especially Kuwait, to enhance the region's stability and security,"
The Kuwaiti emir, for his part, highlighted the necessity of cooperation between regional countries to remove problems of the region, noting, "All Islamic countries standing by each other should cooperate for the unity... of the Islamic countries."
