MOSCOW, April 17 (Itar-Tass) —— A level of Russia-Qatari diplomatic relations remains low due to the reasons, which have prompted Russia to recall its ambassador, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday, referring to the latest media reports on Russia-Qatari relations in the light of the Doha Airport incident of November 29, 2011.
“We would like to say that the level of our diplomatic relations with Qatar is low not because we have not chosen a new Russian ambassador to Qatar but because of the reasons, which prompted us to recall Ambassador Vladimir Titorenko,” the ministry said.
Russia lowered the level of its diplomatic representation in Qatar after the incident involving Ambassador Titorenko at the Doha Airport last November. The ambassador, coming from a business trip to Jordan, was attacked by airport security guards and customs officers who tried to grab his sealed valise with diplomatic mail.
