According to Raisi, the visit poses a turning-table instance in bilateral relations.
Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi met with the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, where the two spoke fervently of reinvigorating their diplomatic relations during the visit.
Raisi considered the visit to be a turning point in the level of relations between the two countries.
During the press conference with his Qatari counterpart, Raisi stressed that the siege on Gaza as well as the crimes of the Zionist entity must be put to an end, in addition to the siege on Yemeni people which should also be broken.
The Iranian president extended his condolences to the family of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, asserting that Israeli crimes will not provide security but rather muster resentment.
On his part, the Qatari Emir revealed that they discussed "regional matters, especially Palestine, Yemen, Syria and Iraq," continuing to say "We discussed the importance of resolving conflicts in the region through dialogue and peaceful means."
The Qatari emir commented on the martyrdom of Shireen Abu Akleh, stressing the need to hold those who committed the crime accountable.
