Question of the Day
Leader quizzed about Iran in secret session
KUWAIT CITY — Three opposition lawmakers on Tuesday quizzed Kuwait’s prime minister in a secret session of parliament for allegedly harming national security by favoring ties with Iran over Gulf Arab states.
Prime Minister Sheik Nasser Mohammad al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, a senior member of the ruling family, said he was ready to face questioning as parliament accepted a government request to hold the grilling behind closed doors.
The lawmakers accuse the prime minister of damaging ties with Kuwait’s partners in the Gulf Cooperation Council by failing to promptly dispatch troops as part of the GCC force to Bahrain to help crush Shiite-led protests in the kingdom.
Official: Britain, U.S. ‘interfering’ in affairs
TEHRAN — Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday accused Britain and the United States of “interfering” in the internal affairs of the Islamic republic.
“It is surprising to witness British and American officials make remarks that clearly interfere in our country’s internal affairs,” foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said in his weekly briefing.
He made the remarks in response to a statement by Britain’s Foreign Office marking the second anniversary of the disputed re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and expressing support for the opposition movement.
