KIEV, December 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Dividing lines have not decreased on the OSCE space, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 20th session of the Council of OSCE Foreign Ministers currently underway in Kiev.
“Attempts are being made to create an artificial trade and economic watershed between integration processes in the European Union and Eurasia following the logic - ‘you’re with us or against us’,” the Russian minister said.
“NATO is refusing to cooperate with the OSCE in the military-political field. Visa barriers remain intact in violation of ensuring the freedom of movement,” he said.
However, Lavrov said, “The OSCE will be able to play a weighty role in harmonizing integration processes, strengthening trust in the military-political field, building equal and indivisible security in Europe and equalize the humanitarian space.”
“The non-easy situation in ‘tough security’ is conditioned by repetition block mentality and attempts to ensure its security at the expense of others in violation of the existing obligations,” Lavrov said.
