The 15th joint meeting of the Coast Guard of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Qatar will be held in Tehran on Sunday, August 4, to develop field cooperation and strengthen good neighbourliness.
The Iranian side is presided at the meeting by Commander of Iran’s Border Police Brigadier General Qassem Rezaei, and the Qatari delegation will be headed by General Director of Coast and Border Security Abdul Aziz Ali Al Mohannadi.
In addition to reviewing past achievements, the parties will discuss new approaches to maritime and border cooperation.
Joint meetings of the Iranian Coast Guard with its southern neighbours are aimed at developing and strengthening mutual relations, indicating the political will of all parties to create a positive atmosphere of cooperation.
Earlier, Iranian and Emirati officials also agreed to bolster bilateral maritime security cooperation during a meeting in Tehran.
It was the first such talks since 2003 which came amid heightened tensions in the Persian Gulf region.
It was the sixth joint meeting addressing littoral security cooperation between the countries, and took place in line with bilateral coordination between the two sides aimed at maintaining and advancing the countries’ maritime border cooperation.
