MOSCOW, February 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has left for Nizhny Novgorod to attend a meeting of the sub-committee on international cooperation of the Russian-Ukrainian interstate commission on February 14.
As co-chairmen, Lavrov and his Ukrainian counterpart Konstantin Grishchenko will discuss a wide range of issues concerning bilateral relations and the international agenda.
“Special attention will be paid to the interaction in responding to new challenges and threats in different formats, resolution of regional conflicts and cooperation between consular services,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday, February 13. “The sides will consider border issues, including review the results of the talks on delimitation in the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea, and the Kerch Strait.”
Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin will confer with Ukrainian First Deputy Foreign Minister Ruslan Demchenko on the sidelines of the sub-committee meeting. Both diplomats co-chair the sub-commission on the operation of the Black Sea Fleet.
Lavrov and Grishchenko are expected to adopt a statement on the 20th anniversary of bilateral relations and sign a plan of inter-ministerial consultations in 2012.
Moscow “is set to hold the upcoming meeting in the traditionally benevolent atmosphere and conduct a constructive dialogue and a joint search for balanced and mutually acceptable solutions to pressing issues of mutual interest,” the ministry said.
