Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, in a meeting with Kuwaiti parliament speaker Marzouq al-Qanem, underscored that solidarity among Gulf countries can help restore security to the region and Gulf, Iran's IRNA news agency reported on Feb. 19.

Solidarity and consolidation of relations of the Gulf countries can procure the security of the Gulf, Rouhani said.

The Iranian president pointed to terrorism as one of the serious problems of the region, and said that "supporting terrorism and extremist groups can eventually harm the interests of their supporters."
