Qatar: Lavrov calls for Gulf crisis dialogue; says Germany provided «no facts» for alleged election «intervention»

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said it was necessary to seek «mutually acceptable approaches», when discussing the Qatari diplomatic crisis at a press conference in Doha, Wednesday, after a meeting with Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Wednesday. Lavrov said that «We are convinced that it is necessary to seek solutions based on finding mutually acceptable... Еще approaches, rejection of counterproductive militant rhetoric, through dialogue, through compromise». «We are confident that this issue would be best addressed within the framework of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf», he added. Lavrov expressed his gratitude to Russia's «Qatari friends» for their high appreciation of «Russia's efforts for the promotion of the concept of de-escalation zones in Syria» and mentioned that Qatar and Russia have «common concern about the impasse in the Palestinian-Israeli settlement». Speaking about the reported accusations by German counterintelligence of Russian intervention in the German election campaign, Lavrov said that «no facts» had been presented thus far, and recalled the «solid fact» that German Chancellor Angela Merkel had been wiretapped by American intelligence services and that he does not «remember that German counterintelligence said something about this».
