MOSCOW, August 24. /TASS/. Moscow is calling on Qatar and a group of Arab states to abandon their confrontational rhetoric and sort out controversial issues at the negotiating table, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
Commenting on Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's upcoming visit to Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar on August 27-30, Zakharova said: "Special focus will be placed on the current crisis in Doha’s relations with Abu Dhabi and a number of other Arab capitals," she stated.
"Russia has been consistently calling on the interested states to abandon confrontational rhetoric, discuss the accumulated matters in dispute at the negotiating table and reach a compromise," Zakharova said.
At talks the sides will discuss in detail the situation in the Middle East and North Africa "with the focus on the need to resolve conflicts by political and diplomatic means," she said. "We plan to inform our partners in detail about Russia’s efforts on resolving the crisis in Syria, including as part of the Astana process, creating de-escalation zones in Syria and also exchange views on the prospects of advancing intra-Syrian talks in Geneva."
