March 11 marks 55th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Moscow and Kuwait City. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Kuwaiti counterpart Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah have exchanged congratulatory letters earlier in the day.

Both Russia and Kuwait have made efforts to settle the diplomatic row between Qatar and the Arab States. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, among others, broke off diplomatic relations with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs. Through Kuwait, the four Arab states handed over an ultimatum containing 13 demands to Doha, but the country has refused to comply with it.
