RABAT, October 11. /TASS/. Moscow is prepared to provide a platform for
negotiations between Iran and Saudi Arabia, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister
and Presidential Envoy for the Middle East and North Africa Mikhail Bogdanov
said on Wednesday.

"We tried several times and suggested that [Iran and Saudi Arabia sit down
at the negotiating table], but we do not impose our mediator's role," he
told reporters.

"However, we have always told our partners in both Saudi Arabia and Iran
that we are ready to provide both a platform for contacts and act as a good
service provider."

He added that Moscow had always proceeded from the need to resolve
contradictions between the two countries.

"It would be much easier to solve many problems, if there was the necessary
mutual understanding and trust between Tehran and Riyadh," Bogdanov said.

He added that the situation in the region as a whole depended on mutual
understanding and cooperation between Iran and Saudi Arabia, particularly,
in combating terrorism
