Iranian president and the Qatari emir have called for "cooperation among Islamic states" in the face of regional and global developments, Press TV reported.
In a phone conversation with
Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani on Thursday, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad voiced his interest for the expansion of Iran-Qatar ties in various fields.
The two leaders also exchanged congratulatory remarks for the advent of the holy month of Ramadan.
"The current events and developments in the region necessitates the expansion of ties and collaborations between friendly and brotherly countries more than ever before," said the President quoted by IRNA.
The Qatari emir, in turn, also called for expanding cooperation with Iran in addressing ongoing regional developments.
President Ahmadinejad also held a similar phone conversation with Saudi Arabia's King Abullah.
