The Arab world’s biggest powers cut ties with Qatar on Monday over alleged support for Islamists and Iran.

“The presidents have called on all the interested sides for a dialogue in order to work out compromise decisions in the interest of preserving peace and stability in the Gulf region,” the Kremlin said.

It also said Putin and Erdogan discussed implementation of agreements on de-escalation zones in Syria.
