President Reassures Qatar Emir of Support

President Hassan Rouhani has again expressed support for Qatar, describing the land, marine and air blockade on the tiny emirate by its Arab neighbors as unfair and urging the Persian Gulf Arab states to “resolve differences through dialogue and negotiations.”
Rouhani made the remark during in a telephone talk with the Emir of Qatar bin Hamad Al Thani on Monday and expressed the hope that Tehran and Doha can use their potential to enhance bilateral trade and economic relations, Mehr News Agency reported.
The dispute began in June 2017 when the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt under Saudi tutelage cut diplomatic and trade ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting "extremism and terrorism" in the Middle East and fostering close relations with Iran. Doha has denied the terror charges.
Rouhani reiterated Iran's backing for Qatar amid the dispute.
