KUWAIT - Iran and Kuwait have agreed to exchange ambassadors again following a diplomatic row over what Kuwait said was an Iranian spy ring, Tehran's foreign minister said on Wednesday.

"Thank God it has been decided that both ambassadors will return quickly to their posts," Ali Akbar Salehi told a news conference at the Kuwaiti parliament.

There was no immediate official confirmation from Kuwait.

In March, a Kuwaiti court sentenced two Iranians and a Kuwaiti man to death for being part of an alleged Iranian espionage ring in a case that strained relations between Kuwait and the Islamic Republic.
