Speech of and answers to questions of mass media by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov summarizing the results of the session of NATO-Russia Council at the foreign minister level, Brussels, 23 April 2013
Ladies and Gentlemen,
We have conducted the next session of NATO-Russia Council at the foreign minister level. We talked in detail and sincerely about problems in the sphere of international security that are growing and, we will not hide it, are escalating and affect security in our Euro-Atlantic region.
The thereat of terrorism does not decrease. The Boston tragedy confirmed again that we cannot talk about a victory over the international terrorist “international”. To that end, we talked about the tasks open to the NATO-Russia Council from the point of view of deepening the political dialog, as well as practical actions and cooperation programs. We presume that all of us need to move to the achievement of the goal set at the summit of NATO-Russia Council held in Lisbon in 2010 faster and more actively, namely – to create a common space of peace, security and stability in the Euro-Atlantic region. By the way, the conference planned for 22-24 May that will be held by the Ministry of Defence of Russia in Moscow, is aimed at accelerating this process. Representatives of NATO member-states are also invited to it, among others.read more...
