MOSCOW, February 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Conflicts in the post-Soviet and post-Yugoslavia space impede interstate cooperation, State Secretary – Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said at an international conference, “Disintegration of the USSR and the former Yugoslavia: 20 Years After: Conclusions and Lessons”, at the MGIMO University on Tuesday.
“The remaining conflicts in the post-Soviet and post-Yugoslavia space bring an element of instability and hamper the development of interstate cooperation. These include the Kosovo settlement, problems in the formation of the Bosnian state, the Macedonian-Greek dispute over the state name, the Transnistrian and Karabakh knots in the CIS space,” Karasin said. “Although the conflicts have different natures, they require close attention and thorough work based primarily on the strict compliance with international legal norms.”
“Global challenges of the modern epoch dictate the need for integration and elaboration of joint approaches to the settlement of arising problems with national and international instruments. Spheres of their use and vectors of the development of our countries in the rapidly changing modern world are subjects for deep probes of experts,” Karasin said.
