TEHRAN: Tehran has received a positive response from Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to an official letter to the two kingdoms on a “peace plan with neighbors,” a newspaper quoted an Iranian Foreign Ministry source as saying.
In an unprecedented move, Iran sent its first official written letter to Saudi Arabia and Bahrain via Kuwait, outlining its project to secure shipping in the Strait of Hormuz and its plan to achieve peace with all its neighbors in the region, the newspaper said.
“Iran has delivered to Kuwait's Assistant Foreign Minister the letters signed by President Hassan Rouhani to Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa,” the newspaper said, citing its source.
The source pointed out that Iran “followed through the diplomatic media and found a positive reaction from the countries of the region in this area, especially in terms of securing navigation in the Strait of Hormuz and bring peace to the region and resolve differences with neighbors.”
He pointed out that there are four other projects on the table of these countries, the first one is American, the second is Russian and the third is European, as well as the Arab project, stressing that these projects are not practicable on the ground, because they monitor the interests of some countries without the rest of the region.
The source said that the Iranian project includes resolving the differences of the countries of the region through a summit, likely to be held in Kuwait.
