President Rayeesi: Foreign Interference Detrimental to Regional Security

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Seyed Ebrahim Rayeesi blamed the presence of foreign troops in the region as the main hurdle to the restoration of regional security and stability.

"Foreign intervention is detrimental to the regional security," President Rayeesi said in a joint press conference with Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in Tehran on Thursday.

Iran and Qatar highlighted the necessity of ending the blockade of Yemen and the Yemeni people’s right to determining their own fate.

The two sides also discussed formation of an all-inclusive government in Afghanistan, liberation of Holy Quds from the Israeli regime's occupation, and putting an end to blockade of Gaza and the tragic crimes committed by the Israeli  Regime.

The Iranian president also expressed sympathy towards the Qatari Emir and the family of Al Jazeera reporter Shrieen Abu Akleh who was killed by Israel earlier this week.

The Qatari Emir, for his part, reaffirmed constructive dialogue as the only way out of disagreements in West Asia.

He said that Doha had a positive approach towards the talks in Vienna to remove sanctions against Iran and believed that the issues would be solved through dialogue.

Sheikh Tamim thanked the Iranian president and other officials for their assistance in successfully holding the 2022 World Cup, and said that Qatar will welcome Iranian football fans who wish to travel to Qatar to attend the event.

The Qatari Emir arrived in Tehran on Thursday. Sheikh Tamim was welcomed by Iranian First Vice-President Mohammad Mokhber upon his arrival in Tehran.

The visit follows a trip by President Rayeesi to Doha in February, where he met senior Qatari officials and attended the sixth summit of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF).

Rayeesi's visit was the first to Qatar by an Iranian president in 11 years. During the trip, Tehran and Doha signed 14 memoranda of understanding in the fields of aviation, trade, shipping, media, cancellation of visa requirements, electricity, standards, education and culture.
