Ahmad Abd al-Aziz al-Jarallah, the editor of Al-Siyasa, told Adnkronos International (AKI) Kuwaitis feared the consquences if Iran’s ambitions were unchecked.
“Kuwaitis are not convinced that Iran wants to develop its nuclear programme for peaceful purposes and are afraid that it could develop a weapon that would damage the whole region,” he said.
“The Iranian nuclear plants are closer to Kuwait, only 500 kilometres from the gulf, than Tehran, 1,000 kilometres away. This gives us a clear image of the dangers that they could pose to Kuwait and Zahran in Saudi Arabia,” he said.
Earlier today, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the latest IAEA report, proved that Iran was being truthful about its blessed nuke program.
