Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has traveled to Qatar for a series of political talks. He will later visit Oman.
Amirabdollahian left Tehran for Doha on Monday on an official invitation from his counterpart, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani, who is also the prime minister of Qatar.
During his visit, Iran’s top diplomat is accompanied by a delegation that includes the foreign minister’s assistants, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Policy and National Security, and the Foreign Ministry’s spokesman.
His visit to Qatar follows a similar trip to Doha last week by Governor of the Central Bank of Iran Mohammad Reza Farzin. During his trip, Iran’s top banker discussed ways of bolstering the two countries’ monetary, banking and economic cooperation with Qatari officials, Press TV reported.
Amirabdollahian is scheduled to visit Oman’s capital city of Muscat following his talks in Qatar.
In an early Tuesday tweet, the Iranian foreign minister said his visits to Qatar and Oman are aimed at further promoting relations with those countries and following up on the agreements reached by the three countries’ high-ranking officials.
He noted that Iran’s neighboring countries enjoy huge economic, trade and political potentialities.
Amirabdollahian added that continued development of all-out relations with neighbors is among basic principles of the Iranian administration’s foreign policy doctrine.
