BISHKEK, April 5 (Itar-Tass) — It is wrong and out-of-date to “wall oneself off” from China, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday in reply to a query about the so-called aggressive policy of China.
“It is counterproductive and out of fashion to wall oneself off,” Lavrov told professors of Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University. “I believe it is out-of-date to be guided by phobias, and nobody will benefit from that,” he added.
“I am deeply convinced that one must not be afraid of economic forms of cooperation, and any states benefits from these,” he noted. Lavrov drew attention to the fact that there have always been big, not so big and small states. “The world has already gone through the period of inequality,” the top Russian diplomat noted. “However, the U.N. Charter has equaled all relations,” he stressed. “Of course, big states have more possibilities, but it is a fact that others are also heard nowadays,” he added.
