The Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has invited his Qatari counterpart Mohammed bin Abdurrahman al-Thani to visit Russia at any convenient time.

«Be grateful Qatari friends for their hospitality, invite my colleague at a convenient time to visit Russia,» Lavrov said after talks in Doha.

Speaking about the crisis in relations between Persian Gulf countries, Lavrov said that Moscow is convinced that «we need to look for solutions on the basis of finding mutually acceptable approaches based on the rejection of counterproductive militant rhetoric through dialogue and compromise.»

«We have confirmed support for the mediation mission undertaken by the Emir of Kuwait, will be ready, if the parties deem it useful, to contribute to these efforts», — said the Russian Minister.
