Introductory speech by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and his reply to questions from the mass media during the press conference summarising the results of the Conference of foreign ministers of the Caspian states, Moscow, 22 April 2014

    
 
 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Foreign ministers of the Caspian states have held a conference in preparation of the Fourth Caspian Summit, which will be held this year in the Russian Federation.

We reviewed the course of work on the Convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea and stated significant progress, which was reached also in the process of today’s negotiations. I would like to sincerely thank my colleagues and all the experts for their contribution to this significant progress.

We reviewed draft documents many of which have been developed and which are planned to be approved at the Fourth Caspian Summit. We devoted special attention to the implementation of the assignments accepted at the Baku summit in 2010. First of all, these are issues related to the delimitation of water spaces. Our positions became significantly closer on this topic. The second assignment from leaders of our countries is related to the measures to preserve the population of endangered fish. Today we discussed the progress of work on the respective intergovernmental agreement.

All the ministers confirmed their commitment to the key principles of interaction in the Caspian Sea: equality, consideration of each other’s interests and the implementation of sovereign rights of the Caspian states, primarily in what concerns their exclusive prerogative: ensuring security in this water body and determining the rules for all the five countries.   Full story Full Story

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
