RIGA, May 12. /TASS/. The summoning of Russia’s ambassador to Latvia Alexander Veshnyakov to the Latvian Foreign Ministry on May 12 is connected with the diplomat’s statements on many topics, the ministry’s spokesman Raimonds Jansons told TASS.

"I can’t go into all details, but the summoning is connected with the ambassador’s statements on a broad range of issues, including in an interview," Jansons said.

He said that "there is an emotional load on all issues that the Russian ambassador speaks about."

"And he finds no positive nuances in Latvia’s attitude toward Russia," the spokesman said.

The Russian embassy told TASS earlier Wednesday that Veshnyakov had been summoned to the Latvian Foreign Ministry.

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.
