MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. The main task of the new concept of Russia’s foreign policy is the establishment of a multipolar world order, with a special emphasis on polycentricity and the sovereign equality of all states, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at President Vladimir Putin’s meeting with permanent members of the Security Council on Friday.
"In the concept we have explained our vision of the principles of a more balanced and fair world order. They include polycentricity, the sovereign equality of states, their right to choose models of development, and the world’s cultural and civilizational diversity. The promotion of a multipolar world order is defined as a framework task on all foreign policy tacks," he said.
He added that the redistribution of the development potential in favor of new centers of growth was leading to the emergence of a new multipolar world order.
"The world economy is undergoing fundamental structural reorganization and transition to a new technological basis <...>, and this is the mainstream trend in international relations at the current stage," Lavrov concluded.
