“A next step in this direction should become drafting of a comprehensive legally binding document on security in the Asia-Pacific region,” he said.
He also noted that “a consolidated concept of a future regional security system with due account of initiatives made by Russia, China, India and Indonesia would be possible to develop by the 2015 summit.” The Russian premier added that Russia had presented a specific draft action plan.
