  • Iran embraces Qatar’s call for regional dialogue

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif welcomed his Qatari counterpart’s call for regional talks, describing collective cooperation as the main solution for a strong region.

According to Tasnim news agency, in a post on his Twitter account on Tuesday night, Zarif said Iran welcomes the call from Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Ale Thani for inclusive dialogue in the region.

“As we have consistently emphasized, the solution to our challenges lies in collaboration to jointly form a 'strong region': peaceful, stable, prosperous & free from global or regional hegemony,” he said.

Earlier in the evening, Zarif held a telephone conversation with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu for talks on the latest developments in Tehran-Ankara ties and the cooperation between the two neighbors in various fields.
