Kuwait orders Iran ambassador to leave country within 48 days

Kuwait-Iran

KUWAIT ordered the Iranian ambassador on Thursday to leave the country within 48 days, Iran’s ISNA news agency reported.

Earlier on the day, Kuwait shut down Iranian cultural mission and ordered 15 Iranian diplomats to leave the country.

The move came after Kuwait convicted a group of men, one Iranian and the rest Kuwaiti, of “spying for Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group” last year.

In response, Iran summoned the Kuwaiti charge d’affaires to protest the Arab state’s restrictions on the Iranian mission.
