TEHRAN, May 12 (Xinhua) -- Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi on Thursday warned of the danger any foreign interference poses to regional security when it comes to settlement of regional issues, official news agency IRNA reported.
Raisi gave the warning at a joint press conference with visiting Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in the capital Tehran, stressing that the regional differences should be resolved by regional countries.
Referring to the Yemeni crisis, the Iranian president called for lifting the siege of the Arab state "as soon as possible" to allow the Yemenis to decide the fate of their own country.
Iran and Qatar agree that Afghanistan's problems should be resolved through the formation of an inclusive government, he said.
For his part, the Qatari emir said "resolving disputes in the region is possible only through dialogue."
"Today, we discussed various issues ... The main topic was about Palestine. We also talked about Syria, Iraq and Yemen. We believe that the problems existing in these countries must be resolved through fair and comprehensive solutions," he explained.
He also expressed Qatar's optimism for the Vienna talks aimed to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
The Qatari emir arrived in Tehran on Thursday, and is scheduled to meet with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Endiem
