Kuwait handed over 47 Iranian prisoners to the Islamic republic under a bilateral prisoner exchange agreement, the Kuwaiti Interior Ministry said in a statement Saturday.
DUBAI (Sputnik) – It noted that the decision was carried out under the terms of a bilateral agreement between the two countries. Tehran and Kuwait City agreed to implement a prisoner exchange agreement signed years ago last February.
"The State of Kuwait’s commitment to the charter of human rights and international conventions and under the guidance of… Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Mohammad Al Khalid Al Sabah… issued a decree extraditing nationals of the Islamic Republic of Iran… numbering 47," the ministry said.
Kuwait expelled the Iranian ambassador and withdrew its envoy from Tehran in show of support for Saudi Arabia, which severed diplomatic ties with Iran in January. The spat came in response to attacks on Saudi diplomatic missions in Tehran and Mashhad, triggered by the execution of a prominent Shiite cleric in Riyadh.
