Doha’s hosting IPU proves defeat of anti-Qatari coalition

TEHRAN, Apr. 08 (MNA) – The participation of 180 parliamentary delegations in Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) shows that the anti-Qatari Arab coalition has suffered defeat, said Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani.

He made the remarks Sunday in a meeting with Qatari Prime Minister Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani on the sidelines of 140th Ordinary General Assembly of the IPU in Doha.

Iran and Qatar have strategic relations with each other and bilateral ties should be cemented in all fields, Larijani added.

Iran considers Qatar’s security and development as its own security and development, he stressed, adding that Tehran supports Doha on all levels.

The Qatari PM, for his part, appreciated Iran’s support in recent years while highlighting the need to boost cooperation in all fields.
