MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. Europe is too quick to forget the historical lessons in its relations with Russia, speaker of Russia’s State Duma Sergey Naryshkin said on Wednesday. He was speaking in the lower house of the Russian parliament ahead of Russia Day marked on June 12.
"It is high time now to reflect on why the thaw periods in relations with our European neighbors alternate with a chill in relations with such enviable recurrence. The simple answer is that the lessons of history are forgotten too quickly," he said.
According to Naryshkin, "the modern era provides an opportunity to wonder why Russia’s independent policy, its economic and natural resources do not let some politicians in the West have a good night sleep, especially overseas politicians." "Those who would like to put our self-possession to test and who openly demonstrate their plans, which are far from peaceful, and intensions of building a unipolar world get nervous and agitated," the speaker said.
Naryshkin added that "efforts to build a just world order cannot and shouldn’t be instantaneous." "They must be based on a common commitment to the culture of peace and dialogue, which should be fostered together and permanently," he said.
