Qatar’s Emir, Iranian President meet in Tehran as regional tensions simmer

Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on Sunday (January 12) amid high regional tensions following Iran admitting they mistaking shot down a Ukrainian airliner that killed all 176 passengers aboard.
Sheikh Tamim and Rouhani spoke on the phone Thursday (January 9) to discuss the latest developments in the region and ways to ensure security and stability regionally and internationally, the state news agency said, amid increasing U.S.-Iranian tensions.
Qatar, an ally of both the U.S. and Iran, have been at odds with other Gulf Arab states who support tighter U.S. sanctions on Iran, as Doha has remained ready to mediate between Washington and Tehran.
