Iranian, Qatari FMs discuss issues of concern on phone

Tehran, Aug 24, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Qatari counterpart Sheikh Mohammad bin Abdelrahman Al-Than discussed issues of mutual concern on phone on Thursday.

During the telephone talk, both sides stressed the need for promoting ties on regional and international issues.

Qatar Foreign Ministry announced on Thursday that Qatari ambassador who was called by Doha some time ago will return to Tehran.

After Persian Gulf Cooperation Council's (PGCC) ties with Qatar turned sour and several members sanctioned the PGCC member state, Tehran-Doha relations have improved and the latter meets all its major needs through Iran.

Iran has been declared as the closest linking route to Qatar as all international flights to the country are possible only through Iran.
