Kuwait closes Iran cultural mission, expels diplomats

Baku, July 20, AZERTAC

Kuwait is closing the Iranian cultural mission and related offices in the Gulf Arab state and reducing the number of Iranian diplomats stationed in the country, according to the official news agency, KUNA.

KUNA said on Thursday the move is related to the case of a "terrorist" cell broken up in 2015 that authorities allege had contacts with Iran and Hezbollah, Al Jazeera reports.

The KUNA report says the Iranian ambassador to Kuwait has been notified.
