TUNIS, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Presidency of the G8 is not a privilege but hard work, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said while on his visit in Tunisia on Tuesday commenting on the Western countries’ decision to suspend preparations for the G8 summit in Sochi presided by Russia.
“They seem to think it is some kind of a privilege. But in fact it is not a privilege but hard work,” said Lavrov. “The presiding country provides for the implementation of many projects coordinated within G8, including the Deauville Partnership, which are of interest for Tunisia and other countries involved in this program.”
“If the West believes the Deauville Partnership can now be put aside until it satisfies its ambitions, what can we do about it?” Lavrov wondered.
