Qatar to Re-Install Ambassador to Iran, Strengthen Ties

Published

on

The authorities of Qatar made a decision to return their ambassador to Iran, recalled a year and a half ago. This was announced on Wednesday evening by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the emirate. “The state of Qatar announces that the ambassador of the emirate in Tehran will soon return to fulfil his diplomatic duties,” the report said.

The statement also emphasizes that the emirate seeks to strengthen bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran “in all areas.” Earlier on Wednesday, Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani held a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif. “During the conversation, bilateral relations were discussed, ways of their activation and development, as well as a number of issues of common interest,” the ministry said in a communique.

Qatar announced the withdrawal of the ambassador from Tehran on January 6, 2016 in protest against the attack on Saudi diplomatic missions in Iran. A few days before that, Saudi Arabia had broken off diplomatic relations with Iran, followed by Bahrain, Sudan, Kuwait and Djibouti. The UAE announced the downgrading of diplomatic relations with Tehran to the level of attorneys in business.

Since the beginning of the summer, the crisis in Qatar’s relations with the Arab states has continued: on June 5, Bahrain, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and several other countries announced the severance of diplomatic relations with the emirate, accusing it of supporting terrorism, as well as closing the borders with Qatar, which became the announcement of the blockade. The parties have not yet reached a mutually acceptable solution.

Emir of Qatar confirms readiness to resolve crisis with Neighboring Nations

The authorities of Qatar are ready for a dialogue with the Arab states boycotting the emirate, subject to respect for the sovereignty of the country. This, according to the Qatar news agency, was announced by Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani at a cabinet meeting.

“If there is a desire to reach an agreement, it should include all parties without dictating, without encroaching on national sovereignty and interference in the internal affairs of all [countries involved in the crisis],” the Qatari leader said. As the agency notes, the Emir “stressed in his speech the readiness of the State of Qatar to resolve the crisis in the Persian Gulf through dialogue.”
