Iran's new ambassador to Kuwait Rouhollah Qahremani-Chabok has arrived in Kuwait City and is scheduled to officially start his diplomatic mission on Tuesday, the English-language daily Tehran Times reported.

It had been over a year that Iran had no ambassador in Kuwait, said the report.

The appointment of the new ambassador came on the heels of Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi's visit to Kuwait. During a press conference in Kuwait after his meetings with Kuwaiti officials last week, Salehi announced that Iran and Kuwait had agreed to exchange ambassadors again, according to Tehran Times.

"It was decided that the ambassadors of the two countries will return to their posts as soon as possible," Salehi was quoted as saying.

Kuwait reportedly expelled three Iranian diplomats in April, alleging that they had links to a spy network, a claim Iran totally denied.

Iran expelled a number of Kuwaiti diplomats days later in a tit- for-tat move.

The Kuwaiti ambassador will also return to Tehran this week, said Tehran Times.
