KIRKENES (Norway), June 4 (Itar-Tass) - The countries of the Barents Sea region believe that vital decisions in the region should be taken by regional countries, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told a press conference within a meeting of the prime ministers of the member-countries of the Barents Euro-Arctic Council (BEAC) here on Tuesday.
“In essence, all of us proceed from the assumption that all vital decisions should be taken by regional countries. In principal, this is just and corresponds to the principle of international law,” Medvedev underlined.
In reply to a question over a higher activity particularly of China in the Arctic Region, the Russian prime minister noted, “We assume that this is our countries in virtue of international agreements that have the right to set the main parameters of cooperation in this region, including the development of the continental shelf, which belongs to our countries, and other issues. “Meanwhile, we live not in a closed, but open world, and in some cases the involvement of other countries, including those from the Asia-Pacific Region, is considered for us, anyway in Russia, not dangerous, but useful on the contrary,” Medvedev underlined.
