RNA - "Iran is keen to strengthen brotherly relations among the regional Muslim countries, including Qatar," President Rouhani said.


The Iranian president reiterated that Tehran has already said it is ready to help resolve the diplomatic crisis between Qatar and the quartet of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt which have imposed a trade embargo on Doha.


“The Islamic Republic of Iran regards what has been imposed on Qatar as unfair and a source of more tensions among the regional countries," President Rouhani said.


Qatari emir, for his part, appreciated Iran’s principled stance on the "unfair sanctions."


Sheikh Tamim said the Qatari nation and government will never forget Iran’s opposition to the sanctions and its decision to open the Iranian airspace and its sea and land borders to his country.


The Saudi-led quartet has accused Qatar of supporting “terrorism", which Doha rejects, contenting that it is being targeted for following a foreign policy line independent of Riyadh.
