Qatar Emir urges Iran, GCC countries to have ‘mutual respect’

Iran and Gulf countries should “focus on the principles of good neighborly relations, mutual respect and the need to resolve any Gulf-Iranian differences through dialogue and negotiations,” Qatar’s Emir has said.

He also urged Rouhani to work toward resolving rising tensions between it, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries, who share differing views on Syria, Yemen and other issues.
