Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi said on Monday that his trip to Qatar is aimed at activating neighborhood diplomacy with the Persian Gulf states.

Raisi told reporters just before departure for Qatar that the visit was made at the invitation of Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani with two objectives.

The first objective is to expand ties with the friend, brother, and neighbor Qatar and the second one is to participate in Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), the President noted.

In line with activating neighborhood diplomacy, especially with the Persian Gulf countries, this visit is a step towards enabling communications between these countries and leveraging their capacities in expanding political and economic ties especially with Qatar with which Iran has joint gas fields, he said.
