Foreign Minister: Qatar ready for talks with all parties to crisis
Qatar is willing to launch constructive talks with the Arab states, which cut diplomatic relations with Doha, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said at the meeting with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi in Beijing.
"Qatar is willing to launch constructive talks with all sides on the basis of respecting sovereignty, non-interference in domestic affairs and complying with international law, so as to gradually establish mutual trust and address differences fundamentally," Al Thani said.
The Qatari foreign minister commends China's objective position on the crisis, saying that Qatar stands ready to maintain communication and coordination with China, and hoping that China will continue to play a positive role, Xinhua reported.
The two foreign ministers also exchanged opinions on bilateral ties and agreed to strengthen pragmatic cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative and facilitate people-to-people exchanges.
