Iran FM talks with Qatari, Saudi counterparts on phone

Iran’s Foreign Minister have held separate telephone conversation with his Qatari and Saudi counterparts to discuss regional developments, including the ceasefire in Gaza.

Qatar’s Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani talked to Hossein Amirabdollahian regarding the reduction of tension in the region, according to IRNA citing the Al Jazeera network.

Amirabdollahian briefed the Qatari foreign minister on recent developments and Iran’s action against the Zionist regime based on the country’s legitimate defense on the determined goals in the occupied territories.

He also emphasized that the main root of regional insecurity is the occupying Zionist regime.

Mohammed Al Thani, for his part, while thanking the explanations provided, emphasized the need for stability and security in the region.

He also accused the Zionist regime of causing instability in the region and emphasized the need to end the war crimes of the Zionist regime and the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia announced that Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud had consulted his Iranian counterpart to exchange views on the latest developments in the region.

The two top diplomats discussed Iran's punitive and legitimate response to the Zionist regime, according a Saudi foreign ministry statement cited by a state news agency.  

Other than Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the Iranian foreign minister received calls from a number of his counterparts in the region and beyond after the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps launched hundreds of drones and missiles toward Israeli targets in the occupied territories.

Iranian attacks were in response to numerous crimes committed by the Zionist regime, including a recent attack on the consular section of the Iranian embassy in Damascus in breach of international law and Vienna conventions. Tehran said that its retaliatory move was based on Article 51 of the UN charter that allows the member state for self-defense.
