MOSCOW, June 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia seeks to develop energy and investment cooperation with Qatar, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has said.

“We hope for restoring comprehensive cooperation with Qatar as soon as possible. Energy and investments are our priorities,” Putin said at a ceremony of receiving credentials from foreign ambassadors on Friday.

“We also stand for security in the Persian Gulf and other trouble spots in the Middle East,” he said.

Relations between Russia and Qatar complicated in 2011, when Russian Ambassador Vladimir Titorenko was assaulted by Qatar airport security and customs officers. Following the incident Russia lowered the level of diplomatic relations with Qatar.
