Qatar welcomes Obama’s call for dialogue with Iranians


"The State of Qatar, which has always been calling for dialogue as the sole mean to address conflicts and differences between countries, praises what the American President announced and considers it a positive and constructive step, " state-run news agency (QNA) quoted a foreign ministry official as saying.
The official, who was not named, said Qatar was looking forward for more practice steps "through the opening of a serious political dialogue to solve all issues in a way contributing to boosting security and stability in the region and entire world." In his address to the Iranians yesterday, Obama said his administration was committed to diplomacy "that addresses the full range of issues before us, and to pursuing constructive ties among the United States, Iran and the international community." "This process will not be advanced by threats," the President said in a videotaped message. "We seek instead engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect." Obama said, "the United States wants the Islamic Republic of Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations," he said. "You have that right, but it comes with real responsibilities, and that place cannot be reached through terror or arms, but rather through peaceful actions that demonstrate the true greatness of the Iranian people and civilization."
