The Qatari and Iranian foreign ministers have met in Tehran and exchanged views regarding a number of issues of interest between the two nations.
Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani met with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in the Iranian capital of Tehran.
Yesterday, the Qatari Foreign Minister discussed the regional developments with Amir-Abdollahian over the phone.
The two ministers reviewed bilateral relations and discussed ways to develop the various fields of cooperation.
The latest regional developments were also discussed in addition to exchanging views on a number of issues of common concern.
The Qatari Foreign Minister’s visit comes days before the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, will hold talks in Washington, at a crucial time for Tehran and major powers’ efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal.
On Monday, Amir-Abdollahian confirmed that Tehran was ready to hold direct talks with Washington if it felt the possibility of reaching a “good nuclear deal.”
The United States and Iran have held eight rounds of indirect talks in Vienna since April, with the aim of reviving the agreement to lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
