7:50 pm
ministers of the countries he joins us now so how significant is it that my brothas is on this tour what is he trying to achieve. rochelle this is part of a russian push to further build bridges with. players in this part of the world some of these countries are some of the world's top producers and exporters of energy. this explains why the russians are willing to team up with qatar in the gas for further expand that partnership to tackle some of the issues that russia faces particular when it comes to the competition worldwide and a push by the americans to further. halt the flow of the russian gas in europe but russia and qatar need at the same time to overcome some of the differences they have particularly when it comes to syria qatar says that must go and that the
7:51 pm
opposition along with other factions has come together and form a terms this unity government russia on the other hand insists that bashar assad should stay in power and the russians and the other syria's should decide his fate in the near future so we're talking about the need to build bridges against the backdrop of his differences let's listen to what. i had to say about the need to further expand the economic cooperation between russia and qatar. if you do this because the real re with our friends is a new to increase trade and economic ties we welcome the efforts some cooperation the next stage will take place in moscow and the april we highly value this relationship we value the cooperation between the russian government and the qatari investment agency. let's talk about the blockade of qatar because the day camera minister said there has been no progress made when it comes to that blockade what are they expecting in that regard from the russians if anything. it was interesting

7:53 pm
willing at the same time to further expand the relationships with different countries in the g.c.c. particularly when it comes to sandy arabia and i think this is the delicate balance that needs to strike just to give you an idea about how difficult that balance is going to be. when the announcement was made in two thousand and seventeen that russia was going to. the missile defense system us four hundred the saudis stepped in and launched a complaint and they asked the americans to do the best to prevent that from happening today the qatari foreign minister so this is not of saudi arabia's business that if the top is and the russians decide and i agree absolutely with the news to be this but she's with us for two or four hundred then so be it so this is going to be a very delicate balance for the russians to strike as they're trying to be young
