On Tuesday, many reports highlighted the Qatari Foreign Affair minister El Sheikh Mohamed Bin Abdel Rahman Althani's call on the Arab Gulf countries to hold talks with Iran, asserting that this is the right time for that.

Althani expressed in his interview with Bloomberg that the Gulf Cooperation Council member states share the same willingness.

In the same context, the minister underscored Qatar's government support to the current talks between Iran and North Korea for releasing the Korean ship that was blocked by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) early this month.

Regarding the possible dialogues between Iran and the US, he asserted Qatar's will to do so, adding that his country looks forward to progress in the mutual ties between Iran and the US.

Earlier this month, former Qatari Prime Minister Hamad Bin Jasim tweeted that Gulf Cooperation Council should think of having a bilateral dialogue with Iran, adding that this cooperation can achieve important targets.

Moreover, he stressed that such a dialogue can obtain peace between the Arabian Gulf countries and Iran.
