The top Iranian diplomat and Qatari emir also discussed transportation cooperation, particularly in the maritime sector.

Amir-Abdollahian also praised Qatar’s efforts over the past years in resolving regional problems, calling on the two sides to enhance cooperation to ensure regional peace, stability, and security, according to the report.

The Qatari emir, for his part, said Tehran has a “special status” in Doha’s foreign policy, and his country “takes pride in its strong and sincere ties” with Iran, the report added.

He noted that it has taken decades of efforts to build such relations with Iran and called for working toward improving bilateral trade cooperation to an “appropriate level”.

Heading a diplomatic delegation, the Iranian Foreign Minister arrived in Doha on Tuesday morning, before leaving the Qatari capital for Oman later in the day.
