Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called on the parties of the Gulf crisis to sit on the negotiating table to end the crisis.
“We have discussed this issue repeatedly,” Lavrov told a news conference in New York at the UN headquarters.
“President Vladimir Putin has had telephone conversations with most of the leaders of the parties of this dispute, and I recently visited the Gulf region,” he added.
Lavrov said: “In all these talks and meetings, we send one simple message that the parties of the Gulf crisis must sit at the negotiating table, give up warnings, seek solutions that are acceptable to all parties and that it is necessary to take into account their concerns and find ways to eliminate them on the basis of mutual benefit,” he noted.
The Russian Foreign Minister expressed his conviction that “this can be done.”
Qatar’s Foreign Minister HE Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, during his meetings in New York with ministers and senior officials of different countries, also stressed that dialogue is the solution to the Gulf crisis.
