Iran Pres. Condemns 'Siege' of Qatar   06/25 13:37

   TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's president Hassan Rouhani has told the Qatari 
Emir that the "siege of Qatar is not acceptable for us," according to the 
office of the presidency's website.

   The Sunday report quotes Rouhani as telling Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani 
in a phone conversation: "Tehran will stand by Qatar's government."

   "Iran's air space, ground and sea will be always be open to Qatar as a... 
friendly nation," said Rouhani, and that the two nations' cooperation will 
remain "continuous."

   Iran's president added that "pressure, threats and sanctions" are not 
solutions for resolving rifts.

   Iran's rival Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain sent 
Qatar a 13-point list of demands to end the regional crisis, which included 
curbing diplomatic ties with Iran.
