Qatar’s Foreign Minister, Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, is scheduled to travel to Tehran on Thursday to meet with top Iranian officials to address regional concerns.
The travel follows a phone conversation between Al Thani, who is also Qatar’s deputy prime minister, and Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Tuesday.
The two diplomats assessed bilateral relations and discussed measures to improve them in many spheres, according to Qatar’s official news agency.
They also discussed the “latest regional developments and issues of mutual concern”, Qatar’s official news agency reported.
Amir-Abdollahian was in Doha, Qatar’s capital, earlier this month for high-level meetings with the Qatari FM and Qatar’s Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.
They addressed the latest developments in Vienna where talks are underway to revive the 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers by eliminating US sanctions and curtailing Iran’s nuclear program.
Qatar has long lobbied for a resumption of the nuclear accord in order to de-escalate tensions in the region.
The upcoming visit coincides with the emergence of a new front in Yemen’s long-running conflict. Iran-aligned Houthi rebels have fired multiple missiles at the United Arab Emirates in recent weeks.
