MUNICH, February 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Saturday will address the 50th Munich Security Conference and hold several meetings with foreign counterparts.
As Lavrov said earlier, he expects that the security conference, which opened Friday with delegates from about 90 countries taking part, will see “discussions and debates with political scientists from around the world.”
“This is a good forum with a firm reputation that gathers quite remarkable conversation partners and participants,” he said.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said Lavrov in his speech would put the emphasis on “Russia’s approaches to crucial tasks of creating in Euro-Atlantics a space of equitable and inseparable security without division lines on the basis of stronger confidence, mutual respect for each other’s interests, and collective response to modern challenges and threats having trans-border nature.”
“Amid soaring instability around the world special attention will be drawn to the importance of ensuring the supremacy of law in international relations,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
On the sidelines of the conference Lavrov will meet with his Iranian counterpart Jawad Zarif. Also, he is scheduled to have a conversation with Ukraine’s acting Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara. Lavrov’s Saturday schedule includes a trilateral meeting with the Foreign Minister of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Poland’s Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski.
Later in the day Lavrov will take part in a meeting of the Middle East settlement quartet.
