Qatar not to be part of anti-Iran moves

Tehran, Qatar will not be a part of military action against Iran, American media Associated Press quoted Khalid Al Attiyah, Qatari Defense Minister as saying.

Al Attiyah made the remarks addressing an international security conference in Singapore.

Is it wise to call the United States and to call Israel to go and fight Iran? ... Whether any third party is trying to push the region or some country in the region to start a war in Iran, this will be very dangerous, he said.

Iran is next door. We should call Iran, put all the files on the table and start to discuss to bring peace rather than war, he added.

Qatari minister went on to say that his country was not a fan of war and supported engagement and dialogue.

Everyone should keep holding on to this and advance with this. In my own judgment, I think the United States is wiser than to enter a war with Iran, Al Attiyah said.
