The Minister’s telephone conversations
RUSSIAN MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS SERGEY LAVROV SPEAKS TO BRITISH SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN & COMMONWEALTH AFFAIRS JACK STRAW BY TELEPHONE
Unofficial translation from Russian
A telephone conversation took place on September 5 between Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov and British Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs Jack Straw.
Straw expressed deeply-felt condolences over the death of numerous hostages in North Ossetia as a result of the abominable terrorist act. The conversation has borne out that Britain, like other leading European Union countries, unconditionally expresses solidarity with Russia in the fight against international terrorism.
