The Qatari official told reporters that the best way out of the Iranian nuclear issue is through negotiations. Underlining the pivotal role of Iran in the region, he invited all countries of the region to mutual respect, reports Trend.
In reply to a question on whether he has brought forth any plan on behalf of certain Arab countries, he denied the existence of any initiative at hand and said his visit is aimed at following up earlier agreements for coordination in their implementation.
Hamad Bin Jasim bin Jibran al-Thani said any attack against Iran by any country would lead to insecurity and violence in the Persian Gulf and in the countries of the region, noting that the best option is seeking a solution through diplomatic efforts.
