Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian meets with Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, the president of the United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi on June 22, 2023.

Qatar Says Efforts Underway To Settle Iran Nuclear Issue

Wednesday, 07/26/2023

Qatar’s Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs says they are playing a positive role in seeking a resolution to Iran's nuclear issue.

Speaking during a media briefing held by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Doha, Majed bin Mohammed Al-Ansari highlighted Qatar's involvement in facilitating constructive dialogue between Iran and the international community.

He said the recent visit of the Minister of State Mohammed bin Saleh al-Khulaifi to Tehran during which he invited Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi to visit Qatar, were part of a series of continuous engagements between the two countries.

Al-Ansari emphasized that Qatar remains steadfast in its positive approach, offering proposals and facilitating meetings between Western and Iranian officials in Doha.

He added that the country aims to break down the overarching nuclear issue into manageable topics, addressing them separately while standing firm on certain points.

In June, Iran’s foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian met Qatar’s Emir in Doha, over what may have been related to reported indirect talks with the United States. Qatar, along with Oman, have stepped in to mediate and facilitate discussions between the US and Iran since the Vienna talks, that began in April 2021 as an attempt to salvage the nuclear agreement, have encountered obstacles and stalled last August.
