Iranian Foreign Minister asserted on Wednesday that his country hoped to have "extremely good" relations with Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain, calling on these countries to end their dispute with Qatar.

This came on the sidelines of the Asian Cooperation Dialogue in Doha.

Tehran has “extremely good relations with Qatar, Kuwait, Oman," Mohammad Javad Zarif said, adding: "we hope to have the same type of relations with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates."

In this regard, Bahrain’s Foreign Minister, Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, warned Iran against “walking towards the abyss”, in an interview with Asharq Al-Awsat.
“Iran made major mistakes when it intervened in the affairs of the countries of the region and sent its money, weapons and militias. The current situation is caused by the nuclear agreement that Washington withdrew from. That agreement dealt with Iran’s nuclear program and left aside its ballistic programs… and the policy of Iranian hegemony,” Sheikh Khaled said during the interview.
