Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, visited Qatar to emphasize close relations between Tehran and Doha and discuss further work in the fields of “politics and economic development,” according to Iran's Tasnim News.
The foreign minister went to Qatar where he said the “military coalitions have already been defeated and foreign forces were providing insecurity in the area.”
Iran claimed that only Gulf countries should be involved in security in the region “not foreign forces” and claimed Iran would “maintain peace and stability in the region.”
Qatar’s foreign minister also expressed satisfaction with the special relations between Iran and Qatar, emphasizing the two countries role in peace and stability.”
The goal of Zarif's visit to Qatar is to encourage closer relations across the Gulf with the emirate and to drive a wedge among US allies. This is why it is called a "special" relationship in some discussions.
