Gulf Arab states and Russia expressed "different" views on the three-year conflict in Syria at a strategic dialogue in Kuwait City on Wednesday, both sides said.
Moscow is the most important foreign backer of President Bashar al-Assad. Gulf Arab states are among the leading backers of the rebels trying to oust him.
"Regarding the situation in Syria, the views of the two sides were different, but they agreed to continue contacts in a bid to reach a common understanding," Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Sabah told a press conference.
