MOSCOW, February 22 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov met with Qatari Ambassador in Moscow Ahmed al-Midadi on Wednesday to discuss the situation in Syria and bilateral relations.
Commenting on the meeting, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported, “Mikhail Bogdanov and Ahmed al-Midadi exchanged views on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa, including the Syrian conflict. They also discussed key issues of Russian-Qatari relations.”
Russia reduced the level of diplomatic relations with Qatar on November 29, 2011 due to the incident involved Russian Ambassador Vladimir Titorenko. At Doha’s International Airport Titorenko, who was returning from Jordan, was attacked by the airport’s safety service and the customs during the delivery of diplomatic mail. Due to Qatar’s aggressive actions an attempt was made to physically affect the Russian ambassador.
On November 30, the Russian Foreign Ministry sent a note of protest saying this incident was unprecedented and outrage on the norms of international law and would have the negative impact on Russian-Qatari relations.
