RIGA, May 11. /TASS/. Russia’s Ambassador to Latvia Alexander Veshnyakov has been summoned to the Latvian Foreign Ministry, the Russian embassy told TASS Wednesday.
"The ambassador was invited for a conversation Thursday, May 12," the embassy said.
Latvian Foreign Ministry spokesman Raimonds Jansons earlier Wednesday told the local information agency LETA that the Russian ambassador was summoned following his interview with the local newspaper Vesti Nedeli.
In the interview, the ambassador in particular said Latvia and a number of other Western countries deliberately demonize Russia.
"The aim is to weaken Russia. For that, apparently, all means are justified, including open propaganda. There’s no need to go far to find examples: it’s a recent film by BBC and Latvian-produced film General Plan," he said.
Jansons was not immediately available for a comment.
