CAIRO - 23 July 2017: Former Iran’s ambassador to Jordan Nasrullah Tajik admitted that Qatar crisis has contributed to increasing Iranian exports of tomatoes, cucumbers and watermelon to Doha, which is suffering the Arab boycott over supporting terrorist groups in the region.
In an interview published by Iranian Namehnews website on Sunday, Nasrullah called on his country to learn from Qatar and follow its footsteps. He added that Qatar’s wealth has improved due to its natural gas investments.
Nasrullah criticized the Iranian foreign policy, adding that “It seems our foreign diplomacy is aging as we are not benefiting enough from available chances. The intra-Gulf crisis only helped us increase exports of tomatoes, cucumbers and watermelon to Qatar.”
“Look at the Turkish investments and troops sent to Qatar. I’m wondering why Turkey crosses 2000 km to carry out investments in Qatar, while our country does not exploit this opportunity,” Nasurallah said.
Nasrullah called on the Iranian diplomats and officials to take advantage of the Gulf crisis like Turkey, continuing that “what’s the difference between Turkey and Iran?”
