"Following the interactions and friendship between Iran and Qatar, the Ministry of Sports and Youth tends to continue these ties and connections in the field of sports."

Sajjadi continued: "These interactions, along with highlighting the country's sports capacity, can be an opportunity to strengthen other issues such as tourism, passenger transportation, etc. Given the presence of World Cup fans in the free zones, we can boost public transport capacity, especially by sea, for this opportunity.

He added:
The offer of the two cities of Kish and Qeshm to host World Cup fans could lead to the strengthening of relations between the two countries in interactions and communication. The southern cities of the country, especially the beautiful island of Kish, are better equipped to discuss hoteling and the services we should provide to tourists, and coordination meetings have begun in the form of meetings and talks.
