MOSCOW, January 31, 2:18 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will go to Germany on Friday, January 31, to attend the 50th Munich Security Conference.
The Russian minister traditionally speaks at this international forum. He will focus on Russia’s approaches to the pressing tasks of creating a space of equal and indivisible security free of dividing lines in the Euro-Atlantic area by strengthening trust, taking into account each other’s interests and providing collective response to modern transnational challenges and threats.
“With growing instability in the world, special attention will be given to the importance of ensuring the supremacy of law in international relations,” the Foreign Ministry said.
On the sidelines of the conference, Lavrov is scheduled to meet his foreign colleagues, including German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. He will also take part in a tripartite meeting with Kerry and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
On Saturday, February 1, Lavrov will meet with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and acting Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara. He will also take part in a trilateral meeting with Steinmeier and Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski.
Lavrov will also attend a meeting of the Middle East Quartet.
