SOCHI, March 6. /TASS/. Oil market trends were not discussed at today’s meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.
"No, they did not discuss this topic," he told journalists.
Earlier on Friday, Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov did not rule out that President Putin and Qatar’s Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani might discuss the current situation on the oil market. "It’s unlikely there will be any agreements reached regarding the issue as Russia and Qatar cannot make such agreements on their own," he said. "We’re aware of the fact that it (the discussion on potential freeze of oil output by key oil-producing nations - TASS) is a very complicated cooperative process," Peskov said.
"However, one cannot rule out there will be some exchange of ideas regarding energy prices today," he added.
After the failed talks regarding the problem between OPEC member-states, Russia and some other countries in Qatar’s Doha "it’s necessary to make a fresh start in many things, of course," Peskov said, adding that it’s not Russia’s turn but the turn of its "certain partners in this process".
