MOSCOW, June 23. /TASS/. Northern Europe does not need division lines or artificial fanning of tensions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in a message of greeting to the international conference Historical Past and Outlook for the Future in Russia and the Nordic Countries. The text of the message is available on the Foreign Ministry’s website.
"Russia systematically works for preserving Northern Europe as a space of neighborliness, partnership and mutually beneficial cooperation," Lavrov said. "We are certain that it is in our common interests to step up cooperation in overcoming various challenges with reliance on international law and the principle of equitable and indivisible security."
"The region does not need division lines or artificial fanning of tensions," he said.
"I expect that the conference will make a useful contribution to maintaining trust and mutual understanding between Russia and the Nordic countries and help enhance international humanitarian cooperation," Lavrov said.
