Holding Syria Talks in Doha Difficult After Diplomatic Row

Qatar’s initiative to create a new platform to Syrian conflict resolution in Doha is a very difficult issue due to serious diplomatic problems.

Qatar’s desire to help in Syria crisis settlement could be welcomed, but it would be difficult to turn Doha into a new platform for talks due to a strained political situation around the country, deputy head of Russia’s State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Alexei Chepa said.

Presently, we are actively using two platforms for the peaceful settlement: the platforms in Geneva and Astana. I think that it would be hard to use an additional platform due to a difficult political situation in Qatar, it is much better to full out the two existing platforms with work,” Chepa stated.

The lawmaker, nevertheless, stressed that Qatar’s initiative to contribute to Syrian conflict resolution deserves praise.
