RIGA, May 22. /TASS/. The final document at the summit in Riga, Latvia, will mention the Crimean issue, but the summit is not aimed against Russia, Finland’s Prime Minister Alexander Stubb said on Friday.
Stubb stressed that the summit is designed to promote cooperation with six countries of the Eastern Partnership - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.
An array of signals will be sent to Russia and the key of them is that the EU seeks a stable and prosperous neighborhood, he said, adding that the countries should be free to choose what an integration club to join.
A source told TASS earlier that at least two countries at the summit - Belarus and Armenia - called against using the term "illegal annexation of Crimea" in the final document.
