Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at the expanded-format meeting with San Marino Secretary of State for Foreign and Political Affairs and Justice Nicola Renzi, San Marino, March 21, 2019
We have just exchanged opinions in a one-on-one format. In 2017 in New York we agreed to make our bilateral relations more substantive and that understanding is being implemented today.
Indeed, for the first time in history, the Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation, and Russia generally, is visiting San Marino. I think we can announce that the next step will be a visit to Russia by the San Marino Foreign Minister. We will be looking forward to it. I promise that the reception will be warm and hospitable.
Thank you again for arranging this meeting.
