Iranian, Qatari FMs discuss bilateral ties, Gaza situation over phone

Tehran, Apr 11 (UNI) Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his Qatari counterpart, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani, on Wednesday exchanged views on the latest developments in bilateral ties and the situation in Gaza.

During a phone call, they also discussed other regional developments and exchanged greetings of the Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, according to a statement released by the Iranian Foreign Ministry.

The Iranian foreign minister said he hoped that Muslim states could enhance cooperation, underlining the urgent need to end the profound humanitarian disaster affecting the Palestinian people, particularly the citizens of Gaza.

Amir-Abdollahian also expressed his hope for the delivery of large-scale humanitarian aid to Gaza to help people in the Palestinian coastal enclave avert famine. He called for support from Muslim states and urged the international community to fulfill its obligations in this regard.

More than 33,400 Palestinians have been killed, and over 76,000 others injured in the Gaza Strip since Israel began its offensive against Hamas on Oct. 7, 2023, according to the Gaza-based Health Ministry.
The conflict began after Hamas launched an unprecedented attack on southern Israel, which claimed the lives of around 1,200 Israelis, according to Israeli authorities.
