6:49 pm
foreign minister is in doha to discuss his country's next i'm grown and regional security. us but kurdish forces fighting the last i saw remnants in syria are slowing down their operation reports of civilians at risk. protests in algeria as the president promises reforms once he's reelected for his fifth. tornadoes cause massive damage in the u.s. state of alabama killing twenty people. in event is all but they will be this season champions a two one win now the napoli taking a sixteen points play at the top of the area table. welcome to the program the war in syria the gulf crisis and the israeli palestinian conflict russia is playing an increasingly visible role in the middle east and
6:50 pm
north africa it sent its foreign minister sergey lavrov to tour the region his first stop is cancer where he just held a news conference in the last alongside foreign minister chef mohammad bin abdul rahman funny but al-jazeera has a. joint press conference with the russian and qatari foreign ministers he joins us now live so hashem how significant is this middle east. and what's he trying to achieve. daryn this is quite significant in the sense that russia is trying to build bridges with countries in the middle east for different reasons russia has been having problems with many countries over regional conflicts like of the syrian conflict in the past where many countries were saying that the bashar assad needs to step aside and the opposition needs to form a new governing coalition something which has been dismissed in the past and this has created so strained relations between. russia and many countries and this
6:51 pm
explains why the russians are trying to mend fences and build bridges they also know trying to flex their military might in the region taking advantage of the fact that in two thousand and fifteen when the intervened militarily in in syria they made a huge difference and they saw an opportunity when the americans started to talk about pulling out from afghanistan from syria and the russians are now ripples this feeling themselves as the most important ally in the region and this explains why they are insisting on starting a new chapter and for that particular reason the russians are saying that they would like to team up with qatar for example when it comes to expanding the gas market worldwide let's listen to what mr lavrov had to say. if you do this really really with our friends there's
6:52 pm
a new to increase trade and economic ties we welcome the efforts and cooperation the next stage will take place in moscow and. we highly value this relationship we value the cooperation between the russian government and the qatari investment and . will now there are no practical steps on the ground which may indicate any change to the research or the demeanor of the blockading countries as a result we still hear the same tired rhetoric. being clear from the beginning of the crisis once the blockading countries are willing to engage in a positive dialogue. however the continued rhetorical lead to no solution. what about russia's relationship with the cats are mean qatar's foreign minister says no progress has been made on the blockade so what are they expecting from the russians. what if you may is to be seen whether a wash could use its influence in the region take advantage of the with the

withdrawal of the us or its waning influence in the middle east and ripples. now which remains to be seen whether they will be able to put more pressure on the countries and push for a political way out of the crisis i mean when you listen to the statement from the . family it was insisting that the. kuwaiti mediation is the. is the alternative is is the most viable push in the near future and that that gives you an indication that they would have to give it was time to see whether kuwait will be able to build bridges although when you listen to the statement from the qatari foreign minister it gives you a strong indication that the qatari government does not really believe that there will be any way out of a crisis so i think there are two things here whether russia will be able to bring all the countries to negotiate a political settlement of the crisis if they can do it that will be
6:54 pm
a significant. more forward but they have also some differences with their own allies in the region like with qatar when it comes to syria qatar insists bashar al assad must go and that he has lost legitimacy something which the russians dismiss they say that should stay in power and that if there is a political settlement it's the syrian peoples who will eventually decide the fate so i think russia faces a mammoth task in the middle east trying to build bridges and offering itself as an alternative to the americans. thank you. well as ashleigh saying they're both sides are emphasizing the strength of the relationship between qatar and russia qatar's invested billions of dollars into the russian economy and it recently finalized an eleven point five billion dollar deal to acquire nearly twenty percent of russia's state all company rosneft well the relationship has stepped up since saudi arabia the u.a.e. bufferin and egypt all imposed a blockade on qatar in twenty seventeen russia has consistently called for an end

to the crisis through negotiations and in october russian qatar signed a number of agreements on military and technical cooperation joining me here on set is measures where he's the director of the gulf studies center at qatar university let's talk big picture first on the russian survey lavrov will clearly be focusing on a number of regional issues like syria yemen libya palestine during the tour but of course top of the agenda will be syria absolutely as we know russia has a played important role in syria since two thousand and fifteen of course started with the military intervention in syria however the russians were able actually to pull out the whole file of the european hands to more school and many most important summits and other places where they able to manage the whole approach about the future of syria and actually the lid actually most of the asians about
6:56 pm
syria so also do worked with turkey by the fact that there are differences with turkey between between both of you in both russia and turkey however they are managing the relationship when it comes to see the russia is ahead when it comes to syria and russia and interesting that sergey lavrov his first stop is here in doha what about the relationship between cats and russia i mean qatar has significant investments in russia we know that russia called for an end to the blockade by its neighbors so what can russia and qatar do for each other as you know both countries are most important the producer for the important back and. also that. has diversity its own foreign policy and the relation is after the blockade more and more and one of the main target was that there was an amazing you know a developing an amazing relationship between it with with with the russians let's not forget there was a you know collaboration when it comes to the world cup and qatar twenty twenty

twenty two qatar is has benefited a lot of the experience of russia and they attended actually the. russia world cup as we know also in addition to the military and economic relations so that is. developing. the relations to make sure that you know it's the fact that by political atmosphere let's just go back to syria for a second because the planned u.s. withdrawal from syria is fueling tensions between russia and turkey especially over it lebanon is russia losing patience with turkey and how can they resolve this i think. russia wants turkey to be collaborating with them they don't want them to turn back and go to washington and for that reason i see that they are trying to keep the door open with us so they can solve the issue one of the most important to pretty to russia is to maintain their relations with turkey it is important it is vital to play with turkey in the region at the moment because the only to them

credible partner is turkey when it comes to iran for example iran is involved but russia is a headache and it caused a lot of the trouble with israelis just just a final thought from you. i mean we're hearing a lot about donald trump and jared first as dean of the sentry this deal that's supposed to bring peace in our time to the middle east i will the russians be keeping an eye on this i think one one of the main reason behind this kind of visit to the region is actually this because we know that russia is not happy with this deal they tried to invited for. by palestinians there to solve the problem within put is there i think russia is not happy with this move and they try actually to fill the vacuum in the region in including the issue of the to the century of the deal of the century sorry all right budgets very thank you very much indeed here i've surgery. now algeria as a two year old president has formally put forward his name for
