MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. Russian delegations feel no isolation while attending international events, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with Russia’s Radio on Thursday.
He said that work of the Russia-NATO council and some sectoral dialogues with the European Union, which had been earlier frozen "were already returning to normal."
"Daily contacts have never stopped," Lavrov added.
"None of our delegations felt isolation at any event, no matter where our president, ministers or heads of other departments arrived," the minister said. "The Russian delegation is a focus of attention at any forum, we are being asked for advice and support for this or that initiative."
"I am convinced that these attempts to isolate Russia were initially doomed to failure. Now everyone understands that it’s just funny to further talk about it."
