MOSCOW, May 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia calls for working out common principles for crisis resolution without double standards, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 3rd Moscow International Security Conference.
Lavrov also called for development of international cooperation to strengthen regional stability.
“Common principles for crisis settlement could play a positive role,” he said.
“For several years we’ve been promoting this initiative within the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE),” Lavrov said.
“We seek to affirm the UN major responsibility for maintaining global peace and security, to rely on the basic principles of international law, to ensure security of civilians, to recognize legal interests of all parties involved in a conflict, to hold an inclusive dialogue and to meet the interests of all political, ethnic and confessional groups,” he said.
“Of course, the respect of people’s right to decide their own destiny without external interference is one of the priorities for contributing to crisis resolution,” Lavrov said.
“Equal partnership between different cultures and civilizations are major conditions for a fair and democratic world order that we want to build,” he said.
