KUWAIT CITY, May 2 (Xinhua)– Kuwait’s Parliament Speaker Jassem
Al-Kharafi said Sunday it was premature to comment on reports that the
Gulf emirate has busted a spy cell working for Iran’s Islamic
Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
“I hope that the government
issue an explicit statement to reveal results of the investigations, and
after the picture becomes clear, we can make a comment,” Al-Kharafi was
quoted as saying by the official KUNA news agency.
remarks came a day after a local Arabic newspaper reported that security
agencies in Kuwait had busted an espionage network that stealthily
gathered information for IRGC.
The Al-Qabas daily, in an exclusive
dispatch, said its sources were from high-ranking security officials,
but did not specify.
The daily said members of the cell had taken
pictures of Kuwaiti military and U.S. military camps and they have
confessed on their deeds. At least seven Kuwaiti men were arrested, and
the security authority has launched a manhunt for several others.
official from Iran’s IRGC on Sunday denied any involvement by the
Islamic Republic’s elite forces in espionage operations in Kuwait.
said he hoped the reports would prove to be false and hailed the
distinctive relations between Kuwait and Tehran.
