KUBINKA /Moscow region/, September 6 /TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu and Qatar’s State Minister for Defense Khalid bin Mohammad Al Attiyah signed a military cooperation agreement on Tuesday.
"The signing of this document will contribute to strengthening the Russia-Qatar military cooperation," Shoigu said at the signing ceremony, which took place on the sidelines of the Army-2016 International Military-Technical Forum in Kubinka near Moscow and will be open until September 11.
The Russian minister also noted the positive dynamics of bilateral military and military-technical cooperation.
"Russia and Qatar are united by the common desire to maintain active political dialogue and build up mutually beneficial ties in various spheres," the Russian defense minister said.
According to him, bilateral defense cooperation fully meets the interests of the states and peoples of Russia and Qatar and contributes to the general stability in the Persian Gulf and the Middle East.
Qatar’s state minister for defense said, in turn, that a joint political dialogue with friends in Russia had proven that the leaders of the two states wanted to establish cooperation and consolidate bilateral relations between the two countries.
