MOSCOW, March 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has noted the non-governmental organizations’ growing interest in Russia’s foreign policy. He was speaking at the annual meeting with NGO representatives in Moscow.
“In general, we have been able to see that our civil society is becoming more active and mature,” Lavrov said. “We feel growing interest from the NGO’s towards our foreign policy.”
“We very much appreciate this format,” Lavrov said, adding that it was a ninth such meeting.
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Minister said that “civil society is getting ever more active in the international scene, and this must be taken into account in our work.”
“Processes in the world scene require renewal of our foreign policy instruments, and interaction with people’s diplomacy is one of the system-formatting mechanisms of that modernization,” Lavrov said. “All sound undertakings of civil society will be supported in our foreign policy activity.”
