Remarks by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his answers to media questions during a news conference following the meeting of the foreign ministers of Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine, Berlin, August 18, 2014

    » Video
 
 

Ladies and gentlemen,

We have had a busy day of talks at the level of the foreign ministers of Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine. The meeting lasted about five hours. The talks were attended by the ministers alone. There were no assistants in the room. We have discussed the whole range of problems now facing Ukraine and the Ukrainian people and noted certain progress in a number of areas that we have been discussing for a while now.

This is primarily true of the recently achieved consensus favouring the delivery of humanitarian aid to the people in southeastern Ukraine. We stated that all the questions, largely artificial, that were posed with regard to the Russian initiative to send about 300 lorries with humanitarian aid, have been removed. All the issues have been agreed upon with the Ukrainian side and the International Committee of the Red Cross. I hope that in the near future humanitarian aid will come to those who need it. I will note parenthetically that as soon as the excitement around this Russian initiative subsided and all the trumped-up suspicions were dispelled, foreign media lost interest in it altogether. Since then, I have not seen once any report on humanitarian aid on any Western TV channel.  Full story Full Story

Speech by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and his answers to questions from the mass media during the joint press conference summarising the results of the negotiations with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Erlan Idrisov, Ust-Kamenogorsk, 6 August 2014

    
 
 

Dear Erlan Abilfaizovich,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I can fully share your assessments, which have just been stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Erlan Idrisov, with regard to the negotiations in Ust-Kamenogorsk today.

We have good impressions from visiting this part of Kazakhstan – the city and the Province, where the multinational nature of the Kazakh people is clearly visible. We value this multinational nature, because we are also such a state and are interested that everybody lives in peace and consent with each other. As friends, we talked about this in detail and fairly today.

We have reviewed the course of the implementation of the agreements reached between the presidents of our countries, who meet very frequently – there were three meetings this year only and no less contacts are yet to come this year.

We discussed the course of implementation of the Plan of Joint Actions of Russia and Kazakhstan for 2013 – 2015 and the state of affairs in the economic, humanitarian, energy and other areas of our multifaceted interaction. We agreed on the accents to be placed in the work of sectoral ministries and agencies for them to be able to fulfil the tasks set by Russian and Kazakh leaders with maximum efficiency.  Full story Full Story
 

 
 
 
 
Speech by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, at the SCO CFM session, Dushanbe, 31 July 2014

    
 
 

Dear Sirodjidin Mukhridinovich,

Colleagues,

First of all, I would like to thank our Tajik friends for their warm hospitality and good organisation of our work.

The issues relating to the preparation for the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, which will be held on the 11-12 September in Dushanbe, and filling it with content, were the focus of attention at our meeting today.

The session of the Council of Heads of Member States (CHS) will be held against the backdrop of the uneasy situation in the world. The establishment of a new polycentric model of the world order is accompanied by the intensification of global competition, which is frequently unfair and aggressive, rivalry in the area of value landmarks and development models. This does not contribute to the effectiveness of the efforts to confront the threats, which are common for everybody: terrorism, illegal drug turnover, trans-border crime, the search for collective answers to the growing challenges of food security, energy and environmental security.  Full story Full Story
