MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) – Under the conditions of the accelerating development of the international relations, it is important to be using a pre-emptive tactic, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on the eve of the Day of Diplomat, which will be marked in Russia on Sunday.
“These days, we are marking the 70th anniversary of the Stalingrad Battle, the crucial point in World War II,” he said. “The events devoted to the date both here and abroad, stress once again the danger of attempts to revise the history and to make own historical phobias and claims instruments of the current policy.”
“It is important that we are gaining more and more allies in Europe and in other parts of the world, the allies of categorical aversion of such approaches,” the foreign minister said.
“International relations are not becoming any simpler,” Lavrov said. “Their speed is growing unprecedentedly, and it is very important for us not to be on the edge of the events, but to try thinking pre-emptively. We should be undertaking steps to improve our line for maximum favourable outside conditions, so that Russia was rich, wellbeing, so that our people lived well and so that they could be safe abroad.”
Traditionally, the minister laid flowers to the memorial plaques in the foreign ministry, which listed names of the diplomats, who died in World War II and on duty.
