Russia urges dialogue to solve Gulf crisis

Russia urges dialogue to solve Gulf crisis”

Qatar's Foreign Minister condemned the illegal siege by the Saudi-led quartet against his country, insisting that the Gulf crisis will only be solved through dialogue, Qatar's state news agency (QNA) reported Monday.

"We are interested in all those mediatory efforts that are now being made producing results and the unity of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) being restored", he added. "This is important in sorting out the region's problems".

A United Arab Emirates minister late Saturday voiced support for the Saudi decision on Twitter, accusing Qatar of "wasting an opportunity" to resolve the crisis.

The audience was attended by Minister of State and Cabinet Member Dr. Ibrahim bin Abdulaziz Al-Assaf, Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, the Special Russian Presidential Envoy for the Middle East and North Africa Mikhail Bogdanov, Russian Ambassador to the Kingdom Sergey Kozlov and a number of officials. "We are keen to sort out this problem and we need to support mediation efforts".

The false media reports are part of an ongoing dispute between Qatar and its neighbours - Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain - as well as Egypt.

"Qatar knows what Qatar has to do".

Al-Zaabi said that the minister's claims about Doha's willingness for dialogue is a mere attempt to enhance the status of Qatar in front of the worldwide community, without any genuine changes having been made. "We need things to be clarified and matters to be serious in order to find a solution", Jubeir said.

The joint statement stressed that Qatar should stop supporting extremist and terrorist ideologies and spread of hate speech.

A day earlier, Saudi Arabia said it was breaking off any talks with Qatar, accusing the small Persian Gulf state of misreporting the content of a phone call between Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad and Saudi Crown Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman.

The Saudi move came just two days after US President Donald Trump spoke with the leaders of Saudi Arabia and Qatar in a bid to mediate.

SPA did not clarify what was meant by "distortion".
