BRUSSELS, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Russia calls to leave the affair over the international organization Greenpeace involving the Netherlands within court proceedings, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said here on Tuesday.
“It is not needed to interfere in the activity of judicial authorities, this is a matter of investigation for passing it to the Russian court, the Netherlands initiated the procedure of arbitration, the affair is within court deliberations, probably, it should be left there,” Lavrov said.
“Our investigative agencies are convinced that at least three articles of the U.N Convention of the Law of the Sea were violated, because the ship Arctic Sunrise had plotted the actions, which included violations of this convention and Russian legislation in the Russian exclusive zone, the Netherlands, as a country of the ship’s flag, was warned many times,” Lavrov said.
