Iran, Qatar FMs say most players call for end of war on Gaza

TEHRAN, Jan. 27 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has exchanged views with his Qatari counterpart about bilateral relations and the Zionist Israeli regime's genocidal war on Gaza.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani held a telephone conversation on Saturday to discuss the latest issues in bilateral relations, Gaza and the region.

"Qatar and the United States are committed to the existing agreement [regarding [Iran] money] and according to the agreement between the Central Bank of Iran and Qatar, the implementation steps are underway," the Qatari foreign minister said. 

Under a deal between Iran and the United States brokered by Qatar last year, the two sides agreed to exchange prisoners and to secure the release of some $6 billion of Iranian funds that had remained blocked in two South Korean banks since 2018 because of US pressure on Seoul.

The Biden administration also agreed to release five Iranian citizens held in the United States.

The foreign ministers of the two neighboring countries further discussed the Zionist regime of Israel's aggression on the Gaza Strip and emphasized that now most of the activists insist on stopping the war and seriously focusing on a political solution.
