YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, March 23. /TASS/. San Marino’s foreign policy independence inspires respect, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Russia’s Rossiya-1 television channel on Saturday.
"There is a particular feeling here that they are people of a small country but with old history, which they revere. They revere their traditions, revere their roots, and they are independent. The fact they have not joined the sanctions and that they have their own position on many other issues inspire a huge respect," Lavrov said.
On Thursday, the Russian foreign minister came to the Republic of San Marino on the first official visit in the history of the two countries’ relations.
