Kuwait Summons Iran Diplomat to Protest Arash Remarks, KUNA Says

Kuwait summoned Iran’s charge d’affaires to protest an official’s remarks that Iran would unilaterally produce from the disputed Arash gas field unless an agreement is reached between the countries, the state-run KUNA news agency reported.

The area, which spreads over three countries, is subject to bilateral negotiations and nations shouldn’t act unilaterally, Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Khalid al-Jarallah told Sayed Shihabi, KUNA said.
