The Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, discussed, on Thursday, with Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi, international issues and developments in the region.
This came during a session of talks between them in the Iranian capital, Tehran, which Al-Thani arrived earlier Thursday, on an official visit of an unspecified period, according to a statement by the Amiri Diwan.
The statement stated, “During the session, bilateral relations between the two countries in the political, economic and commercial fields were discussed.”
He added, “As well as enhancing prospects for bilateral cooperation in the sectors of tourism, investment, and transportation.”
The talks also dealt with a number of “regional and international issues, especially the latest developments in the region,” according to the same source.
The visit of the Emir of Qatar to Tehran comes after the Iranian President’s visit to Doha last February, in light of brotherly and historical relations between the two countries, in contrast to Tehran’s “strained” relations with some Gulf capitals.
At that time, the two countries signed 14 cooperation documents in the fields of aviation, trade, maritime, media, foreign policy, energy, metrology, culture and education.
Doha and Tehran have distinguished historical relations, as Iran was one of the first countries to recognize Qatar’s independence (in 1971), and the first Iranian ambassador presented his credentials to the Emir of Qatar in 1972, while Iran’s first Qatari ambassador arrived in 1973.
