"We have ideas that we want to offer our partners additionally," he said. "It is no secret, we would like to talk with our partners in advance to find out what they think about the implementation of some interesting ideas in the format of 18 East Asia Summit (EAS) member-countries," the diplomat said.
"We have launched a dialogue on a new security architecture," Ovchinnikov went on to say. "The participants in this process have divergent opinions on it, but all of them share the view that the dialogue is useful."
