Strengthening Russia’s position in the international arena is irritating. This was stated today by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, speaking at a meeting of the Federation Council.
«The world is going through a difficult stage: the US missile defense system is being deployed in Europe, under the threat of scrapping the treaty on the Iranian nuclear program. This document will send the wrong signal to solve the problems of the Korean peninsula,» Lavrov said.
According to him, American partners are used to the fact that their words are perceived as the truth in the last resort. Uncooperative pressure is applied — direct interference in internal affairs, economic measures.
«Strengthening Russia’s position on the international scene is irritating. The line for containment encompasses politics, sports, and the media. We do everything to ensure the sovereignty and security of our country. This is not done through self-isolation. Russia actively participates in international processes. An honest line, based on the principles of truth, is in demand, it helps to develop dialogue,» Lavrov said.
Separately, the minister noted the successes of Russia in Syria: the defeat of militants, the preparation of the ground for the start of a political dialogue.
