KIEV, December 05. /ITAR-TASS/. The OSCE can help work out ways to promote the common economic space from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 20th session of the OSCE Foreign Ministers Council on Thursday.
“Russian President Vladimir Putin set the task. European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso shared his view,” the Russian minister said.
“The OSCE has opportunities to implement the goal that should be based on collective efforts in social and economic rights, fighting unemployment, poverty and corruption.” Russia is ready to share experience in the G20 in order to coordinate steps towards ensuring economic growth, expanding employment, providing finances and investments into the real sector, and introducing high tech, he said.
“Among common challenges I can name natural and man-made calamities and measures to remove obstacles for delivering international aid to an emergency area,” Lavrov said.
Russia “is ready to continue substantial talks on energy security based on the balance of interests of exporting, importing and transit countries with due respect of the existing obligations”, he said.
