Iran's Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said Monday that Tehran is ready to sign security cooperation agreements with regional countries in line with confrontation against common threats, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.

The West introduces Iran's power as a threat to regional countries to pursue its goals, but Tehran seeks peaceful ties without tensions in the region, Mohammad Najjar was quoted as saying.

Western project of Iranophobia in the region aims to create disparities between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, that is, Iran and Arab states respectively, but despite their attempts they have not succeeded, he said.

West's interests require them to disagree with good relations between regional countries, he added.

On February 24, Iran and Qatar signed a security pact in Doha.

Commenting on the Iranian-Qatari security agreement, Najjar said the pact will serve the security of the entire region.

Under the agreement, Qatar and Iran will exchange technical delegations, expand bilateral training projects and promote counter-terrorism cooperation, according to the official Qatar News Agency.
