BEIRUT, April 26 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said Friday that he agreed with the Lebanese officials on the necessity to find a political solution to end the Syrian crisis based on a comprehensive national dialogue.

Bogdanov said in separate statements following his meeting with Lebanon's caretaker Prime Minister Najib Miqati, Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour and Speaker Nabih Berri that "We have no choice as for the solution to Syrian crisis but to agree on the political solution based on the national dialogue and the Geneva Communique. "

The Russian diplomat expressed hope that the Lebanese would be able to resolve all their disputes, form a new cabinet and reach agreement on the electoral law.

According to statement issued by Miqati's office, the meeting between Bogdanov and the prime minister focused on the situation in the region, the conflict in neighboring Syria and the conditions of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

Miqati announced his resignation last month after his government failed to reach an agreement in a cabinet session over the formation of a supervisory electoral body.
