BELGRADE, May 15. /TASS/. The Mistral ships affair in Russia’s relations with France has acquired an exclusively legal and commercial aspect, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday.
"The foreign policy aspects of the Mistral issue, including the reliability of partners, have long been cleared up," he said. "Frankly speaking I have long lost interest in the affair, because it has acquired a purely legal and commercial dimension."
"When asked about the issue our president said: ‘We’d like to have our money back’, just as it is stated in the contract," Lavrov said. "I have nothing to do with the affair any more for obvious reasons."
