Strengthening Relations with Neighbors is Iran’s Top Priority, Says Envoy

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Tuesday said that it was his country’s top priority to strengthen relations with the neighbors, especially with Arabic countries.

Referring to Iran President’s visit to Qatar, Amir-Abdollahian in a tweet said that Iran-Qatar relations are based on common interest. President Ebrahim Raisi arrived in Qatar on Monday where he held high-level talks with Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani and will participate in the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) today (Tuesday).

Raisis, which is accompanied by high-leave delegations, have signed several agreements aimed at boosting bilateral ties with the gulf state. In the presence of Raisi and Hamad al-Thani, Iranian and Qatari ministers have signed contracts in the different political, economic, cultural, and sports fields.

“We are also giving top priority to having a strong relation with the regional countries,” Amir-Abdollahian said, adding Iran extends its hand of friendship to the countries in the region.

Before departing from Tehran for Doha, Raisi termed the visit as a step towards activating diplomacy with neighbors, especially Persian Gulf countries in a bid to use their capacities in developing political and economic ties.
