Two quick snippets from MEMRI show that both sides of the Gulf’s strained Arab-Persian relationship are trying to keep it afloat.

First is the Iranian insistence that their recent display of small and medium ranged missiles is not aimed at their brotherly Muslims but avaricious Western powers. But they would say that, wouldn’t they? And, after all, it’s not as if they’ve been caught lying recently…

Secondly, KUNA (Kuwait News Agency) reports the Arab States have agreed to participate in talks on Iran in October. Not exactly an earth shattering agreement, I suppose, but not without interest.
