Russia is ready to promote “further normalization of Arab countries’ relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran”, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the results of the ministerial meeting of the Russian-Arab Cooperation Forum.


He believes that “this is a very important task”, but its achievement “would help move towards the settlement of various crises in the region, including those in Syria, Yemen and a number of others”.


The Russian Foreign Minister pointed out that “this is the aim of our well-known concept of ensuring security in the area of the Persian Gulf.” “And we will continue to promote corresponding initiatives in order to eventually create the necessary ‘critical mass’ for launching a specific dialogue on all these issues,” TASS cited Lavrov as saying.
