MOSCOW, May 28. /TASS/. Russia and the United Arab Emirates share the opinion that domestic problems of the Middle East states are to be solved through national dialogue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday after talks with his UAE counterpart Abdallah bin Zayid Al Nuhayyan.

"We have completed the talks where we discussed bilateral relations and problems facing the Middle East region," he said. "We share the opinion that these problems are to be solved through dialogue in these states between all political, ethnic and religious forces."

"We work on the basis of one criterion - the destiny of each country must be decided only by its people who should be involved in the nationwide dialogue with the participation of all ethnic, religious and other groups," Lavrov said. "The inclusive national dialogue principle is directly applicable to all without exception conflicts in the Middle East, North Africa and other regions. And the dialogue in all these cases can only result in a compromise."

He noted that the situation in Yemen, Syria, Libya and Iraq had been discussed in this light.

The Russian foreign minister also stressed the necessity to pool efforts to rebuff terrorism in the Middle East. "We proceed from the fact that the actions of the so-called Islamic States are a real challenge to stability and security in the Middle East and North Africa in general," Lavrov said. "Russia and the United Arab Emirates will strengthen cooperation in the anti-terrorism sphere both in the bilateral and international formats.".
