CAIRO (Reuters) - Kuwait is looking at Iranian threats to block the Strait of Hormuz with concern, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Sunday quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled al-Jarallah as saying.

KUNA said Jarallah was commenting on tensions in the region after Iran’s Revolutionary Guards made a threat to close the strategic waterway. “We are looking at these threats with concern, and hoping as always to distance our region from this tension,” KUNA quoted him as saying.
