Kuwait, Mar 31: Kuwait is to expel a number of Iranian diplomats for alleged links to a spying ring, Foreign Minister Mohammed Al-Sabah announced today.
"There will be action against a group of Iranian diplomats ... They will be considered persona non grata and expelled from Kuwait," Sheikh Mohammed told reporters.
He charged the diplomats had proven links to the suspected spy ring, three members of which a Kuwaiti court condemned to death to Tuesday.
An Iranian foreign ministry source, quoted earlier by state news agency IRNA, denied any such link. "This claim is a lie and baseless. This issue has nothing to do with the Islamic Republic of Iran," the source insisted.
