Iran, Qatar, Turkey to Hold Ministerial Meeting
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The economy ministers of Iran, Qatar and Turkey are scheduled to hold a meeting to discuss the status of trilateral cooperation and trade.
The trilateral meeting of Iranian Economy Minister Massoud Karbasian, Turkey’s Nihat Zeybekci, and Qatar's Ahmed bin Jassim Al Thani will be reportedly held in the near future.
The three ministers are expected to coordinate plans for closer trade ties, particularly after imposition of sanctions against Qatar by Saudi Arabia and some other Arab countries.
Back in August, the economy ministers of Turkey and Qatar visited Tehran for talks on the expansion of trade interaction and export of Turkish goods to Qatar through Iran.
Iran and Turkey became the two major suppliers of Qatar’s needs for food after Saudi Arabia and a number of others severed ties the Doha government and suspended air, sea and land transport with Qatar in June.
