Qatar's Crown Prince Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani met President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tehran on Tuesday.
During the meeting Ahmadinejad said the two countries enjoy brotherly relations
and should expand their cooperation at regional and international level.
The president praised Qatar's active and constructive role in the Middle East and called for a quick expansion of relations with Doha.
The president went on to say that enemies are seeking to resolve their economic and political problems through spreading war in the entire region and that is why regional countries should be more united than ever.
Ahmadinejad said the West does not want to see a secure Middle East and that's why it has
been attempting to halt the emergence of powerful countries in the region.
He also said Tehran sees eye to eye with Qatar about the enemy's plots against regional nations.
The two countries are expected to sign a number energy, military, and economic agreements during the Qatari official's trip.
