Russia is ready to share its experience with Qatar in the organization of the international football championship, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday.

"Our countries are cooperating in the sports sphere," Lavrov said at a joint news conference with Foreign Minister of Qatar Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani.

"After the successful organization of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia the next World Cup will be hosted by Qatar in 2022 and we have pointed out that the relevant structures of both countries are maintaining close contacts on this issue," Lavrov said.

Qatar is set to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup between November 21 and December 18 at seven venues across the country, namely in Doha, Lusail, Al-Wakrah, Al-Khor, Al-Rayyan, Umm Salal and Madinat ash Shamal.

Qatar won the right to host the matches of the 2022 FIFA World Cup on December 2, 2010.

In March 2015, FIFA officially announced that the 22nd edition of FIFA’s flagship event would be played in November and December 2022, with the final match set for December 18, 2022 - Qatar National Day - and with the objective, in principle, of holding the tournament for 28 days.

"We will be sharing our experience and giving advice to our friends in Qatar on a better approach to the organization of the international championship taking into account the decisions, which were made during the preparations for the World Cup in Russia and were justified," the Russian foreign minister added.
