MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. The dialogue Russia-Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, known as the Gulf Cooperation Council, has proved its efficiency, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday.
"Some five years ago our meetings were kick-started in Abu-Dhabi, and today we are holding the fourth meeting," Lavrov said opening a meeting of the strategic dialogue. "Over the past years, the dialogue has proved its efficiency on global and regional issues." "We hope that this meeting will give impetus to our relations," he added.
"Since holding the previous round in 2014 a whole number of meetings have been held at the highest level between Russia and the states represented here, there were numerous phone conversations," the minister said. "During these contacts our work [of ministers - TASS] was highly assessed. We expect that we will justify the confidence of our leaders."
Moscow hosts the fourth meeting of the strategic dialogue Russia-Gulf Cooperation Council on Thursday. Russia’s Foreign Ministry said Lavrov plans to discuss settlement of conflicts in the Middle East and energy issues with counterparts from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman.
