Russian and the League of Arab States (LAS) believe that only a dialogue would be a sufficient tool to resolve the recently developed situation in regard to Qatar and the league’s respected reputation in the region should help in this direction, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with LAS Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit.

“We have discussed the situation regarding Qatar,” Lavrov said. “We have reiterated our common stance that the situation must be resolved by means of a dialogue.”

“We believe that it is important to seek the ease of evolved tensions basing on mutual respect in the interests of all countries’ development in the region,” the top Russian diplomat said. “We hope that the reputation of LAS will help in this regard.”
