Iran's IRGC seizes trespassing Saudi vessel in Persian Gulf

It said the move is related to the 2016 conviction of the members of the so-called Abdali cell broken up in 2015 that authorities allege had intelligence contacts with Iran and Hezbollah, a Lebanese resistance group.

The spokesman also denied that Kuwait had "expelled" any of Iran's diplomats, saying that officials from the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry had informed the Iranian ambassador on Thursday of a request to lower the number of the diplomatic staff. When Saudi, along with some other Arab countries, announced the end of their diplomatic and economic relations with Qatar, it was said that backing of Iran by supporting Doha was one of the main reasons. In response to the Kuwaiti measures, the Iranian Minister for Foreign Affairs has summoned the Kuwaiti charge d'affaires in Tehran, but Iran has not yet taken any reprisal measures.

Arresting Saudi fishers came three weeks after Riyadh released Iranian fishers after a year of prison.

"The action was not nice and it is blameworthy".

Saudi Arabia, which severed ties with Tehran previous year over attacks by Iranian demonstrators on its missions in the Islamic Republic, welcomed Kuwait's move.

Qasemi said Tehran reserves the right to take reciprocal measures, but it is not going to do so as only a few Kuwaiti diplomats are working in Iran and their number is not more than the Iranians allowed to stay in Kuwait.

The official placed the blame on Kuwait for worsened diplomatic ties, saying Tehran has always had "positive ties" with the Arab state.
