Al-Thani said earlier today that Qatar hoped Russia would play a major role in solving the Syrian crisis.

Syria has been locked in an armed conflict that killed over 250,000 and displaced millions since 2011. The crisis has seen troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad fighting against opposition factions and extremist groups, such as the Islamic State (ISIL) also known as Daesh, which is prohibited by many countries, including Russia and the United States.
