MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. Russia calls on the West to discuss seriously ways of building the architecture of indivisible Euro-Atlantic security, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday.
"Our opinion causes discontent of those who demonstrate obsession with the idea of their own exclusiveness, despite the objective tendencies of the emerging multi-polar world," he said. "The recent edition of the United States’ national security strategy emphasizes that Washington must rule all and everywhere relying on its available tools - from economic sanctions to force pressure. It reiterates the United States’ preparedness for unilateral use of military force."
Russia, in his words, has been calling for a serious conversation about ways to build the architecture of indivisible Euro-Atlantic security on a "solid fundament and principles agreed within the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the United Nations, the Russia-NATO Council."
Moscow is confident that a fresh impetus in consolidating efforts to confront common challenges "is to be given by the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the victory in the Second World War," he said.
"At the Yalta Conference seventy years ago, members of the anti-Hitler coalition were able to rise over their egoistic ambitions and contradictions and reach accord for the sake of common security," Lavrov underscored.
