MOSCOW, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has expressed confidence that partners in the East will not use sanctions against Russia.
“As for our other partners, European countries, first of all, speak against economic sanctions. We hear this in many countries, mainly in leading member-states of the European Union, including Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom,” Lavrov said.
“In the East, we have no need to ask our economic and strategic partners for solidarity. They have no plans to toe the line of such politicians (those calling for introduction of sanctions). Our interaction with them will develop increasingly. I have no doubt about this,” he said.
