Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks during talks with Foreign Secretary of Mexico Luis Videgaray Caso, New York, September 22, 2017
Luis, dear friends,
First of all, once again I would like to express our condolences to the families, the government and the people of Mexico after this terrible earthquake. President Vladimir Putin sent his message of solidarity to President [of Mexico] Enrique Pena Nieto. We are ready to provide humanitarian assistance, and we will discuss specific features of this offer with you.
And otherwise, I think it is a good opportunity to discuss where we are in our bilateral relations after the presidents met in the margins of the BRICS summit in China. It was a good meeting, and we have to follow up to keep the momentum.
Again, it is very nice to see you.
