MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. The reason for the growth of terrorism and extremism in the Middle East was attempted "geopolitical engineering", which broke state institutions and security mechanisms in the region, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told the BRICS Global University Summit on Tuesday.
"The aggravation of this threat in the Middle East and North Africa took place amid the weakening, including as a result of the rude outside interference, of the state institutions in a number of countries in the region," he said. "The attempts to carry out ‘geopolitical engineering,’ to topple undesirable regimes have led to destruction of security mechanisms, chaos, anarchy, the risk of break-up of countries and seizure of their territories by terrorists."
Lavrov noted that "in the current turbulent situation in world affairs it was necessary to negotiate, to seek compromise, which may create a long-term stable system of relations in every area." "Recent events clearly show that joint action, rejection of the rush for unilateral benefits at the expense of partners may lead to progress in solving even the most complex and intricate problems of our time," he said.
