Rouhani: Tehran policy based on further development of ties with Doha

Tehran, June 25, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani in a telephone conversation with Qatari emir reaffirmed Iranian government and nation’s support for the Qatari nation and government, saying that Tehran policy is based on further development of ties with Doha.

President Rouhani congratulated Qatari emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani on Eid al-Fitr, saying that contributing to Qatari economy and promoting relations between the two countries’ private sectors can be among their common goals.

Noting that Tehran is standing alongside Qatari nation and government, Rouhani said, “We believe in case of dispute among regional states, pressure, threat or sanctions are not proper ways for settling them.”

Brotherly and friendly ties between Iranian and Qatari nations are in the interest of regional nations, he said, adding, 'Iran favors a regular cooperation with Qatar, as there are numerous capacities for bolstering bilateral relations, which should be used.

Iranian president further stated that Iran’s demand is dominance of moderation and rationality over regional states’ relations, hoping that regional disputes would be solved through dialogue.

“Iran is ready to do everything in line with regional stability,” Rouhani said.

Underlining that Qatar’s siege is not acceptable for Iran, he said that Iran’s air, sea and land spaces will be open to the neighboring and brother state.

Rouhani also said that Islamic world needs unity and integrity and the two countries can cooperate with each other in all fields.

Qatari emir, for his part, congratulated Rouhani on Eid al-Fitr, saying that his country’s arms are open to interaction and cooperation.

Appreciating Iranian government and nation’s backing to the Qatari nation and government, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani said that Iran-Qatar relations have always had an upward trend.

“We are ready for promoting all-out relations and are also prepared for cooperation in line with solving Islamic world’s problems,” he said.

Islamic world is experiencing a difficult situation and settling the problems requires dominance of wisdom and dialogue, he said.
