According to The Iran Project,This was in reaction to a joint statement by Kuwait and Jordan following a meeting between their leaders, which underscored the gas field, Durra as they call it, is situated within the Kuwaiti territorial waters, with all its resources belonging to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

In a statement, Nasser Kanaani, the spokesman for the Iranian ministry, dismissed the remarks as invalid and said the unilateral assertion of such claims does not create any right for the claimant. 

"We urge Kuwait to avoid the incorrect path of media hype on this matter and instead return to technical and legal negotiations, which is the best and most appropriate way to address the issue.”

"Based on historical rights and the record of joint negotiations, the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to continue discussions within a framework that ensures respect for mutual interests."

The spokesman emphasized Iran’s adherence to the principle of good faith in regional interactions and stressed the need to avoid the involvement of third-party states in this matter.
