MOSCOW, June 19 /TASS/. Not a single contemporary international problem can be solved without Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the RBK television channel on Friday.
"I do not think that there is any serious global problem, which can be solved without Russia," the Russian minister said. "Look what are the priorities of the US foreign policy and Western policy today: if Ukraine is left apart, then it is Syria, it is Libya; it is the migrants who are fleeing Africa for Europe in search of a better life and are creating a headache for the European Union; it is Iraq where nothing improved after the US invasion in a sense of hopes that the country will become capable of coping with its own problems," Lavrov said adding that Iran’s nuclear programme and the nuclear problem of the Korean peninsula could hardly be solved without Russia.
"It is impossible to solve any serious tasks on any of these problems without Russia’s participation," the Russian foreign minister said.
"On the whole, we play a vital role in guaranteeing long-term stability in the Middle East, including a search for the settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli settlement," Lavrov stressed.
