Moscow: Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has called for dialogue to settle the crisis between three GCC countries and Qatar. 

In a statement today, Lavrov said the current crisis with Qatar is an issue of great concern, emphasizing that "it's important to settle any differences at a negotiating table to ease concerns that emerged and pool efforts in the fight against the main regional threat, terrorism."

He also pointed to the telephone conversation held in this regard yesterday between Russian President Vladimir Putin and HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.
