05.05.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at talks with Minister of Foreign Affairs of the State of Qatar Hamad Bin Jassem Al Thani, Sochi, May 5, 2016

Mr Minister, friends, We are happy to welcome you to Russia, to Sochi, the host city of the 2014 Winter Olympics. A couple of weeks ago, President of Russia Vladimir Putin spoke on the phone with Shaikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar, and they agreed to continue to coordinate Russia-Qatar positions on regional and international affairs and, of course, to redouble their efforts towards strengthening bilateral cooperation.

05.05.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with Rossiya Segodnya, May 4, 2016

Question: Yesterday you met with Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for Syria, Staffan de Mistura. US Secretary of State John Kerry met with him shortly before. Active diplomatic work is underway. What can you tell us about the next steps and dates of new meetings on Syria at the Geneva talks and with the involvement of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG)? Sergey Lavrov: I believe the Geneva round will be resumed this month. At any rate, this is what Staffan de Mistura is planning, and we are actively encouraging him to do so. After the January round was effectively disrupted, the opposition calling itself the High Negotiations Committee (HNC) slammed the door, because its ultimatum on the premature decision on the resignation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was not carried out. The implacable opposition, represented by the same committee, put to the test the April round as well. They said again that they have nothing to discuss until it is clear when exactly Assad will leave. Importantly, this time Mr de Mistura displayed restraint and wisdom and did not say, as in January, that the round will be closed early and that the sides will meet later. He continued the talks with the remaining Syrian opposition groups, which behaved appropriately, unlike the HNC that I mentioned, and conducted a full-fledged round of talks as scheduled.

First of all, I would like to wish all those present a happy World Press Freedom Day which, in accordance with UN resolutions, is celebrated on May 3. I would like to express my gratitude for our cooperation, and my support for all journalists, especially those who continue to gather information in hot spots, risking their lives. I would also like to express my condolences to the families and friends of those who died carrying out their professional duties. Today I held talks with Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for Syria Staffan de Mistura, which were very useful.
