Iran and Qatar Leaders Discus Bilateral, Regional issues

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi discussed bilateral and regional issues with Qatar Emir Tamim bin Hama Al Thani, who arrived in Tehran today for a one-day visit.

During the meeting, Raisi and Al Thani stressed the importance of strengthening the relations between the two counters as well as preserving close cooperation at different levels, including joint investments.

In a joint press conference, Raisi said that foreign countries’ meddling would be harmful to regional peace and security, stressing that the regional governments are capable of resolving their problems.

Referring to the Yemen conflict, Raisi called for an end to the war and to let the Yemeni people determine their own fate sans interference from any foreign countries.

In his part, Qatari Emir Al Thani said he discussed issues in West Asia and the Middle East with Rasis, and both sides agreed to resolve disagreements through constructive dialogues.

“We discussed issues concerning Palestine, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen among others, and we are committed to working together for peace, security, and stability in the region,” Al Thani added.

Al Thani also expressed Qatar’s support for the Vienna talks between Iran and western powers representatives to successfully revive Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal to help remove sanctions against Iran.

Deputy European Union Foreign Policy Chief and Vienna talks coordinator Enrique Mora visited Iran on Wednesday and met with Iranian top negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani to help give a push to negotiations in Vienna.

It has been for months now since the suspension of talks in Vienna while the participants have returned to their capitals for consultations.
