Qatar receives message from Iranian President: Doha

IRNA – The Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani has received a message from President of the Islamic Republic Hassan Rouhani, says the foreign ministry of the Persian Gulf littoral state.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab-African Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari met Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani Foreign Minister of the peninsular country in southern Persian Gulf to deliver the verbal message of President Rouhani for the Qatari Emir, wrote the Information Office of Qatar’s Foreign Ministry on its website.

No details have been disclosed about the content of the message.

On June 5, Saudi Arabia severed all ties with Qatar, alleging that the country is a terrorist sponsor, a move that was followed by a few Arab countries, including Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt.

Tehran believes that the crisis could only be settled through political peaceful means and engagement of the parties in transparent negotiations.
