Qatar-Iran, Politics, 12/2/2006
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad and Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani discussed bilateral relations, latest international developments, and regional issues in Doha yesterday.
According to a report of the Presidential Office's Media Department, President Ahmadi-Nejad, during the one-hour meeting, emphasized Iran's firm determination to expand ties with all Persian Gulf littoral states, especially Qatar, and said that his country values relations with countries based on brotherhood and friendship and irrespective of the geographical size as well as expansion of cooperation to deepen religious, cultural and historical ties.
Ahmadi-Nejad, referring to the US' interventionist policies and attempts to create divisions among regional states as well as the failure of Washington's and London's policies in Iraq, said the occupiers in Iraq are in a serious dilemma and are looking for a way to exit from the country.
He said the occupiers are trying to create divisions among the Iraqi people by playing on their religions and ethnic values in order to divide them and prevent them from achieving their goals.
But, Ahmadi-Nejad continued, the increasing awareness among peoples of the region and the world will seriously challenge bullying powers and global arrogance in trying to achieve their goals.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Khalifa al-Thani, for his part, said the closeness of stances of the two countries on various regional and international issues and their good relations as well as the strengthening of cooperation among regional countries will contribute to peace and stability and development of the region and the entire Muslim world as a whole.
