Touching upon international affairs, Sergey Lavrov said his country will not join any confrontation. “We are for equal rights of all states in the global processes”.
Commenting on the issues of deployment of missile defense system in Europe, Russian Minister said Russia calls for leading joint struggle against all kinds of threats. “But we think one sided decision made by US on the deployment of missile defense system in Europe is a risk both for Europe and Russia”.
Russian Foreign Minister touched on the settlement of conflicts too. “Crises and conflicts should be settled through dialogues, method of isolation of countries is not the solution. We are not interested in the existence of hot spots and centers of tension around Russia”.
Sergey Lavrov said he stands for the development of Commonwealth of Independent States on the way that meets modern standards.
