Qatar says it's time Persian Gulf Arabs start talks with Iran

TEHRAN, Jan. 19 (MNA) – Qatar's Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani said that his country has urged Persian Gulf Arab nations to enter a dialogue with Iran and that it was the right time for Doha to broker negotiations.

Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, who’s long called for a summit between leaders of the six-member Persian Gulf Cooperation Council and the Islamic Republic, said his government was “hopeful that this would happen and we still believe this should happen.”

"This is also a desire that's shared by other PGCC (Persian Gulf Cooperation Council) countries," he told Bloomberg.
