President: Iran after enhancing regional security
Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani described threats, pressures, economic blockade and sanctions in the relations among world government as a wrong and nondiplomatic path, and said that Iran is after fostering security in the region.
Iran has no tendency to enter conflict with other countries or world powers, President Rouhani said in a phone call with Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.
Stressing the fact that Tehran is after developing relations with Doha, the Iranian president said Iran is seeking to reinforce security in the region and has no tendency to enter conflict with other countries.
If they start an illogical act, undoubtedly they will face firm and regrettable response.
Expressing congratulations over Eid alFitr, Rouhani said Iran will stand by Qatari people and government.
Regional issues will have no military solution, he said, adding that Tehran believes threatening, pressure and economic sanctions are a false way in the relations between governments.
Elsewhere in his remarks, President Rouhani lauded Qatari government's stance in the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council and the Arab League, and said its position is rooted in good neighborliness policy and is in line with reducing tensions.
Undoubtedly, any summit which does not make countries closer to each other will be ineffective, harmful and destructive.
He said the relations between Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Yemen and Qatar and their false ties with Iran will harm the region.
Iran's position towards occupying Kuwait by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, Saudi and the UAE attack on Yemen and their positions against the Qatari government proves the fact that Iran is against war, pressures and sanctions in the region.
Meanwhile, Qatari Emir extended congratulations on the occasion of Eid alFitr, and said that Tehran and Doha share close stances on many regional issues.
He also described as constructive connections between two countries.
Qatar believes that negotiation is the only way for deescalating tensions in the region, the Qatari emir said.
Sheikh Hamad noted that Qatar welcomes Emir of Kuwait's initiatives for reducing tensions in the region.
Terming relations between Iran and Qatar as historic, the Qatari emir appreciated Tehran's position towards blockade by Saudi Arabia, the UAE and their allies in Qatar, and said Qatar is after developing relations with Iran in all fields.
