MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has not agreed to the proposal of the Turkish foreign minister about the meeting, Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Maria Zakharova told TASS on Wednesday.
"We made a point of the Reuters report, which said, citing a spokesman for the Turkish Foreign Ministry, that an agreement had been reached to hold a meeting of the foreign ministers in the coming days," she said. "Such statements of the Turkish Foreign Ministry once again point to the lack of basic ideas of ethics and respect and are significant in terms of the credibility of everything that we hear from Ankara."
"In the course of the telephone conversation between Sergey Lavrov and the Turkish foreign minister the Russian minister did not give his consent to any of the numerous proposals about the meeting," Zakharova noted. "Lavrov has just said in an interview with Russian and foreign media that he had made no commitments to meet with the Turkish foreign minister during the forthcoming OSCE ministerial session."
"We would like to request the Turkish officials to reduce the flow of inaccurate information," the diplomat added. "You have already said a lot over the past 24 hours."
