Aboul Gheit remarked that the final statement of the Russian-Arab Cooperation Forum mentioned a number of issues and proposals on crises in Syria, Libya, Yemen.

"It [the document] reflects the fact that Russia and Arab countries have similar views. Perhaps, the views differ in one case � on Syria, there is not a full agreement with Russia's position.
