The Iranian officials said that planning and promoting cultural activities, particularly handicrafts and traditional arts, in Kuwait can create a new economic hub and pave way for other cultural activities in the Muslim country. The official said, "We will send a team for studying the Kuwaiti market for handicrafts. We hope we can have a foothold in Kuwaiti handicraft market by making precise plans." Iran and Kuwait have sought to expand bilateral ties through exchanging several high-ranking delegations in the last few years.
