MOSCOW, November 25 /TASS/. Russia’s membership of the Council of Europe is crucial for developing cooperation in the European continent along the principles of democracy and equal security, the participants in a regular meeting of the Russian Inter-Departmental Commission for the Council of Europe Affairs said, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Friday.
"They reviewed the results of Russia’s 20-year-long membership of the Council of Europe and considered practical issues for Russia’s interaction within the Council of Europe in a complex contemporary international climate," the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.
"Special attention was paid to the work of Russian ministries and departments aimed at affixing Russia to the Council of Europe legal framework; ensuring the work of Russian representatives in its working bodies and assessing the current state of affairs at PACE," the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
"The inter-departmental commission stressed the importance of Russia’s membership of the Council of Europe for developing equal cooperation of continental states along the principles of democracy, human rights, the supremacy of law and equal security for all in the interests of forming a pan-European legal and humanitarian space," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
