MOSCOW, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — Fever in the global economy, the situation in Syria and Africa require collective approaches, which will define a world order, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday at a traditional meeting with students and teaching staff of Moscow State Institute of International Relations ( MGIMO-University).
“For the past year many events have occurred in the world,” he said. “Drastic changes on the global landscape prove that we are witnessing a transitional period of world development accompanied by serious shocks.”
“The eurozone and the global economy in general continue to fever,” Lavrov said. “Unrests in different corners of the world do not subside. First of all, this concerns Syria and the whole region of the Middle East and North Africa. Tensions around Iran’s nuclear programme and the situation on the Korean Peninsula persist. Developments in Afghanistan and around it remain a formula with many unknown quantities. The threats of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, drug trafficking, environmental degradation, food deficit and the spread of epidemics remain.”
“The scale of challenges the world community is facing requires collective analysis and collective efforts to develop the ways to settle them,” he said. “In fact, the talk is about determining the main parameters of a world order in the 21st century.”
“Russia as one of the centres of a polycentric international system that is taking shape fully realizes its measure of responsibility for this at this new historic stage,” Lavrov said.
