KUWAIT - Iran's foreign minister is due to visit Kuwait this week, the Iranian embassy said on Monday, at a time of increasingly hostile relations between Sunni-ruled Gulf Arab states and predominantly Shi'ite Iran.

Kuwait sentenced three men to death in March for being part of an alleged Iranian spy ring, and Bahrain has accused Tehran of stoking Shi'ite-led protests which were put down in March with the help of Saudi and UAE troops.

Iran criticized the use of Saudi troops to quell the protests, drawing an accusation of interference in Bahrain's internal affairs from the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council, greatly concerned about Iran's influence in the region.
