Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has met and held talks with the Qatari emir on bilateral relations as well as regional developments.
According to Press TV, Zarif, who is in Doha for a one-day visit, and Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani discussed the promotion of trade and economic ties. They also exchanged views on regional conflicts and common concerns.
The Iranian top diplomat is also to meet his Qatari counterpart Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al-Thani.
Zarif’s visit to Qatar comes amid efforts to improve ties between Persian Gulf Arab countries and Iran after relations between Tehran and some of the Arab countries of the strategic region became tense when Saudi Arabia unilaterally severed its diplomatic ties with Iran.
On January 25, Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah al-Khalid al-Hamad al-Sabah paid a visit to Iran to deliver Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah's message to President Hassan Rouhani.
Last month, Rouhani paid a visit to Oman and Kuwait to hold talks on bilateral and regional developments.
