Kuwait orders Iranian embassy to reduce staff, close offices- agency

DUBAI, July 20 (Reuters) - Kuwait told the Iranian embassy on Thursday to reduce its staff in the Gulf state and close down some of its technical offices following a court ruling last year that implicated some Iranians in a spying case, state news agency KUNA reported.

The agency, citing a foreign ministry source, said Kuwait also decided to freeze any activities involving joint committees between the two countries following the ruling by Kuwait's top court in a case known as the "Abdali cell". (Reporting by Sami Aboudi; Editing by Gareth Jones)
