Speech by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and his answers to questions from the mass media during the press conference summarizing the results of negotiations with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Mozambique, Oldemiro Balói, Moscow, 21 April 2014

    
 
 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We have conducted valuable and trustworthy negotiations, which we traditionally have with our friends from Mozambique. We stated sustainable development of our bilateral ties, confirmed commitment to their further deepening and distribution on new prospective areas.

We talked about the significant potential of the increase in the mutual turnover of goods and investment cooperation, including in areas like geological exploration, iron and steel industry, petro chemistry, agriculture and fishery, energy and infrastructure projects. A special seminar on issues regarding perspective areas of use of Russian capital in Mozambique will be held in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russia with participation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of the Republic, Oldemiro Balói. For our part, we will stimulate the interest of Russian business, which is now practically looking at the opportunities in this friendly country.

We are interested (and this was confirmed today) in further development of military and technical cooperation. Interaction in the humanitarian, cultural and education areas is an integral part of our relations. We told our partners that Russia increased the quota for education of Mozambique nationals in Russian higher education establishments at the expense of the federal budget again.  Full story Full Story

Speech by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his answers to questions from the mass media summarising the meeting with EU, Russian, US and Ukrainian representatives, Geneva, 17 April 2014

    
 
 

Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen!

We have ended our meeting on the situation in Ukraine, which continued the series of contacts between the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, and me. This time we gathered together with the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, and the Acting Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Andrii Deshchytsia. Like during our meetings with John Kerry in the bilateral format, our partners prefer separate press conferences. Therefore, I am alone with you, but they will tell about their impressions about the results of this meeting individually.

We approved a document – Geneva Statement of April 17, 2014, in which we agreed that we need to take primary and specific steps to de-escalate tensions and restore security of all Ukrainian nationals. We agreed that all sides must refrain from any violence, intimidation or provocative actions. We strongly condemned and rejected all expressions of extremism, racism and religious intolerance, including anti-semitism. These are very topical requirements in terms of the events in Ukraine in the last months.  Full story Full Story
 

 
 
 
 
Speech by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and his answers to the questions summarising the results of the negotiations with the Deputy Prime Minister of Vietnam, Pham Binh Minh, Hanoi, 16 April 2014

    
 
 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Vice Premier of Vietnam, Mr. Pham Binh Minh, for his hospitality and attention to our delegation.

Russia and Vietnam are time-proven friends. We appreciate each others traditions and feelings, which the people of the two countries have for each other. Thanks to intensive joint efforts, the relationship of comprehensive strategic partnership is filled with practical content in each and every area.

Today we discussed the course of the implementation of the agreements, reached during the visits of the President of Vietnam to the Russian Federation in August 2012 and the President of the Russian Federation to Vietnam last November. The trade turnover between our countries is growing sustainably, although, I absolutely agree with my friend, we would like it to be greater. The expected conclusion of the free trade zone agreement between Vietnam and the Customs Union is that it will contribute to the growth in its volumes in the near future. This work is going on in parallel with the activity of the Russian-Vietnamese work group on priority investment projects, within the framework of which are prospective plans to build-up capital investments and the implementation of other mutually beneficial agreements. Joint measures in the areas of oil and gas are being undertaken to implement orders of the Russian and Vietnamese presidents about the need to diversify our ties in this area between companies and joint ventures of the two countries.   Full story Full Story
