Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani says his country welcomes expansion of economic trade with Iran and would facilitate partnership with Iranian enterprises.

Speaking at a meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on Sunday, the Qatari Emir urged the Iranian and Qatari authorities to work for further cooperation in trade, tourism and joint ventures.

Al Thani who was on a one-day visit to Tehran further attached importance to cooperation with Iran as an influential player in the region, pointing out that any security coordination among regional countries will be of no avail in the absence of the Islamic Republic.

Qatari Emir said Doha and Tehran had always cooperated on different regional and international developments at various levels.

Heightened tension in the region is not beneficial to any country, the Emir said, highlighting the fact that the Islamic Republic has always pursued a wise and prudent stance on regional developments.

The Iranian president said in the meeting that expansion of mutual relations served national interests of the two countries.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to take new steps in trade and economic spheres between the two countries,"   President Hassan Rouhani said.

He emphasized that Qatar, as a friendly country, can turn into a base for trade, economic and maritime cooperation between Tehran and Doha.

Highlighting Iran's advances in various fields of science and technology, including water and power supply, Iran’s president said Tehran was ready to transfer its expertise to “the friendly and brotherly country of Qatar”.
