A delegation of high-ranking officials from Qatar’s Ministry of Transport and Communications as well as Qatar Ports Management Company arrived in Tehran on Monday to survey avenues of expanding cooperation and increasing bilateral trade with their Iranian counterparts.
The delegation is scheduled to visit Iran’s southern ports and become familiar with their commercial and tourism capacities and meet with Iranian provincial port officials and businesspeople, the news portal of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development reported. 
Qatar has been drawing closer to Iran economically, as Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said in September 2017, since a number of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia abruptly severed diplomatic relations with Doha early June and imposed a blockade on the Persian Gulf country, accusing it of supporting terrorist groups. 
The Qatari government has denied the accusation, blasting the blockade as unjustified and a violation of international law.
