Raisi: End to Foreign Interference Necessary for Regional Stability, Security
By Staff, Agencies
Iran’s President-elect Sayyed Ebrahim Raisi said achievement of collective security and stability in the region requires an end to foreign meddling in regional affairs.
Speaking in a telephone conversation with Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani on Thursday night, Raisi emphasized that collective stability and security can be achieved once foreign interference in regional affairs comes to an end.
He said collective security constitutes a key part of his incoming administration’s regional foreign policy doctrine, which can bring about peace and stability to the regional states and tranquility and prosperity for the nations.
In parallel, Raisi said the next Iranian administration will attach paramount significance to neighboring countries in its economic diplomacy, describing strong connection between political ties and economic interactions in Iran-Qatar relation as a good model for regional trade convergence.
He also called for further promotion of Tehran-Doha bilateral ties.
The Qatari emir, for his part, congratulated Raisi on winning the Iranian presidential election. He lauded Doha-Tehran relations as distinct and excellent and hoped for further promotion of ties between the two countries.
Al-Thani also praised Iran's strong support during the rancorous Saudi-led embargo against his country, especially the effective role played by Raisi as the Chief of Iran’s Judiciary.
“We have overcome difficult conditions, and must now stand together and help each other out,” the Qatari monarch pointed out.
