Qatar hopes for peaceful solution to Iran's nuclear standoff
font size    

Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassem al-Thani said in Doha on Monday that his country was worried about an escalating threat to Iran over its nuclear file, hoping the crisis could be solved by diplomatic and peaceful means.

The minister made the remarks in a business leaders' forum in Doha, which was sponsored by the Forbes Business Magazine.

He also warned against dangers resulting from the Iranian nuclear standoff, which he saw would have a negative impact on the whole region which had suffered from conflicts.

He voiced hope that the Iranian nuclear crisis could be handled in the same way as denuclearization on the Korean peninsula.

"We need to deal with the issue with great wisdom and less anger to reach a peaceful end to it," he said.

The UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1737 on Dec. 23, 2006, demanding Iran "suspend all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, including research and development.

Iran defied the resolution and vowed to continue its nuclear programs.

The United States said on Monday that the six countries -- the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, will discuss a new resolution that will apply more diplomatic pressure on Tehran.
