Russia urges Gulf countries to start talks to defuse tensions: Ifax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday urged all countries in the Gulf to sit down for talks to defuse tensions following an attack on Saudi oil infrastructure, the Interfax news agency reported.

Speaking in Moscow, Lavrov called for measures to be put in place to stop a similar situation happening in the region again and said that groundless accusations against Iran over the attacks were inflaming tensions, Interfax reported.
