Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addresses students and faculty of MGIMO University and takes questions, Moscow, 1 September 2014

    
 
 

Mr Torkunov,

Mr Bazhanov,

Friends,

Happy Knowledge Day! I’d like to congratulate the new students in attendance on getting accepted to one of the world's best universities – and I stand by these words.

This is a special year in the history of MGIMO. This October, we will celebrate its 70th anniversary. The Second International Forum of MGIMO Alumni will also take place in October. MGIMO approaches its anniversary at the height of its success and in great shape thanks to the creative approach of the university administration, faculty and professors, and the inquisitive and hungry minds of the students.

The university has established itself as a leader in training high-calibre specialists in international affairs and as a leading think tank providing wide-ranging analysis. In conjunction with the Diplomatic Academy, MGIMO provides a valuable product that aids the work of the Foreign Ministry.  Full story Full Story
 

 
 
 
 
Remarks and answers to questions from the media by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during a joint news conference with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif, Moscow, 29 August 2014

    
 
 

Ladies and gentlemen,

The Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and I had a substantive discussion. We reaffirmed that our relations are based on the age-old traditions of friendship and neighbourliness. Proactive top- and high-level political contacts have provided a new impetus to their continued development.

We reiterated our mutual commitment to further promoting cooperation with a focus on trade and economic relations, and emphasised that both countries are interested in taking our relations to a new level, above all by following up on the agreements between President of Russia Vladimir Putin and President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani.

We discussed the key issues on the international agenda, and affirmed that our approaches to most of them either converge or coincide. We agreed to continue close consultations on various issues related to strengthening global and regional security and stability.  Full story Full Story

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s speech and answers to questions during International Youth Forum Seliger on 27 August 2014

    
 
 

Good afternoon,

First, I’d like to thank forum organisers for inviting me here. This meeting is really important to me because diplomacy must be in sync with the sentiments of those who have chosen one of the social sciences as their profession and who care for their country and its future through the development of national consensus with the use of all the society’s available spiritual, intellectual and material resources. Now that globalisation has reached out to all spheres of human life, the line between domestic and foreign policies is becoming relative, because these policies have become intertwined and are influencing each other.   Full story Full Story
