MOSCOW, October 11. /TASS/. Russia will be doing its utmost to promote a settlement in Cyprus, but it is against setting artificial deadlines likewise attempts at dictating solutions from outside, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with the leader of the Progressive Party of Working People, Andros Kiprianou.
"We’ve always supported the implementation of the UN Security Council’s resolution on Cyprus," Lavrov said. "We believe that the Cypriot communities should have a chance to make a decision on the basis of consensus, without attempts by external players to dictate any solutions."
"We will be doing our utmost in order to help achieve a settlement. But we are against any artificial deadlines or ultimatums dictated from outside," Lavrov said.
