Tehran: Iran`s semiofficial Mehr news agency
says Tehran has released two Kuwaiti citizens detained last
month for suspected espionage activities.

Iran`s ambassador to Kuwait, Ruhollah Ghahramani, told
Mehr that Iranian authorities have determined that the two
Kuwaitis had engaged in press activities without permission
but were not involved in espionage.

He said on Sunday the pair had entered Iran on tourist visas.
Iran and Kuwait have accused each other in recent years
of running spying rings on the other`s territory.

Kuwait in the past alleged Iran was operating an
espionage ring that included surveillance of US and Kuwaiti
military sites. Iran denied the claims.
