The Qatari emir was officially received by President Hassan Rouhani at Tehran’s Saadabad Palace on Sunday, January 12, 2020.
The two sides then started a meeting behind closed doors, and discussed bilateral issues and regional affairs.
The Qatari emir is going to meet with Iran’s Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei later in the day.
The visit came as the drone that carried out the mission had reportedly taken off from a US military base in Qatar.
Iran has repeatedly threatened to target any country in the region which is used by the US to attack the Islamic Republic.
