Zarif: Ending Gulf dispute result of Qatar's 'brave resistance'

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday an agreement towards ending a dispute between Qatar and Saudi Arabia and its allies was the result of Qatar's "brave resistance to pressure and extortion."

"Congratulations to Qatar for the success of its brave resistance to pressure & extortion," Zarif said on Twitter after the announcement of the agreement.

"To our other Arab neighbors: Iran is neither an enemy nor threat. Enough scapegoating — especially with your reckless patron (US President Donald Trump) on his way out," Zarif added.
