TEHRAN, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) -- None of the existing conflicts in the Middle East has a military solution, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday.

Zarif made the remarks in a meeting with Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in Doha on Tuesday, Tasnim news agency reported.

The regional states should work together towards finding political solutions and give priority to "regional initiatives" for peace, Zarif was quoted as saying by the report.

"Iran favors perfect relations with all of its neighbors, and believes that all parties should give priority to regional initiatives for collective stability and security," Zarif said.

He also expressed hope for closer relations between Tehran and Doha, strong cooperation between the two countries' private sectors, and enhancement of trade and economic interaction.

For his part, the Qatari emir reaffirmed the necessity for constant consultation among regional countries and peaceful solutions to the ongoing crises in the region.

Zarif has travelled to Qatar after a one-day visit to Oman.
