MOSCOW, August 15 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow and Dubai come out for a peaceful resolution of Middle East conflicts, including Egypt, a source in the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday after a telephone talk between Mikhail Bogdanov, the Russian President’s envoy for the Middle East and deputy foreign minister, and Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the foreign minister of the United Arab Emirates. The Emirates’ side initiated the conversation.
The parties discussed the Middle East situation with the emphasis on the political developments in Egypt. “Both sides came out for peaceful, non-violent resolution of problems of countries in the region, respect for sovereignty of states and non-interference in their internal affairs,” the source in the ministry said. “The sides agreed to maintain a vigorous Russia-Emirates political dialogue on issues of mutual interest, including prospects for partnership between Russia and the Cooperation Council of the Arab States of the Gulf,” the ministry source said.
