Spox: Iran’s view on Arash gas field clearly expressed earlier

SHANA (Tehran) – Iran’s view on the Arash joint gas field has been already expressed, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani on Monday.

Speaking in a weekly press conference, the spokesman added the dispute can be settled within the framework of legal mechanism, underling that raising technical issues in media will not help resolve it.

The official made the remarks in his reaction to the joint statement of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait on the joint Arash gas field, known as Al-Dorra in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

Last week, Kanaani said Iran is ready to continue bilateral negotiations with Kuwait in line with the results of the previous talks over exploiting the joint hydrocarbon resources in the Arash field and demarcation of maritime borders.

Underscoring the principle of good neighborliness and the importance of the Iranian government’s policy of bolstering ties with neighbors, Kanaani said the Islamic Republic of Iran believes that an agreement regarding this case can be reached through constructive cooperation and interaction and with due respect for the interests of the two countries.
