Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks during talks with Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus Nikos Christodoulides, Moscow, October 21, 2021
Mr Minister, dear Nikos,
We are glad to welcome you to Moscow. Your visit is the continuation of our regular and intensive dialogue on bilateral, regional and international matters.
President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades and I had a very useful meeting in New York but, for understandable reasons, it was brief.
Today, we will discuss in detail the implementation of top-level agreements reached between the foreign ministries and other parts of our governments.
Your assessments of the situation emerging in the Eastern Mediterranean and in the Middle East as a whole are of much importance to us.
