Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani, welcomed the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Doha on Tuesday.
The Emir and Zarif discussed cooperative relations between Qatar and Iran.
According to Qatar’s News Agency, “the meeting demonstrated cooperative relations between both counties in various fields. In addition, discussions took place on the status of the region, including current events.”
The Emir expressed his comfort regarding the strengthening ties between Qatar and Iran.
Sheikh Tamim also welcomed the idea for Iran to oversee regional issues. “It is important to have continuous consultations with the region’s countries, including Iran,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Iranian foreign minister expressed his hope in strengthening the dual relationship between Iran and Qatar in all fields.
On Tuesday, Iranian state media published images of Zarif in Doha meeting with Qatar’s ruling emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. It marks Zarif’s first trip to Qatar since the diplomatic crisis began in June.
“None of the regional crises have a military solution,” Zarif said at the meeting, according to Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency. All sides should “give priority to regional initiations for restoring collective stability and security.”
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt have cut all ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing Doha of supporting and funding terrorism and growing closer to Iran.
