The Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Russia is always open for dialogueRussia is ready to search for ways of normalisation of conditions round Abkhazia and South Ossetia and is always open for dialogue.
the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov has informed on it on Wednesday in Sochi to representatives of mass-media, transfers department of the information and the press the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
“ ourselves inform in advance our partners on all prospective steps which anyhow can infringe on their interests. So, for example, the president of the Russian Federation before we have accepted compelled, but the unique decision on a recognition of independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, has warned the basic partners that such statement prepares “ - S.Lavrov has noted, having underlined that Russia is opened for daily, hourly dialogue.
S.Lavrov also has commented on performance of the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Great Britain David Milibenda which has taken place on August, 27th in Kiev. According to the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, D. Milibend asserts that Russia should answer on “ three critical questions “. In - the first, Moscow should clear the relation to territorial integrity of neighbours. As S.Lavrov has noted, this question is cleared for a long time: “ We all of them recognised without any problems after disintegration of Soviet Union. Recognised, despite enormous indignation in our public opinion concerning in what forcible image separate territories were transferred from the Russian Federation in other republics of the former Soviet Union. Recognised, in particular, even in spite of the fact that the Georgian party declared the independence, roughly having broken the right were in structure of Georgia of autonomies in this case to define the status independently. Autonomies of Georgia were both Abkhazia, and South Ossetia, and Adzharija, but the Georgian management has deprived of their this status. So the problem of territorial integrity of Georgia in this case consistently was undermined by the Georgian management, since Zviada Gamsahurdija “. And the president of Georgia Michael Saakashvili, having applied the armed force against people whom he, under its statement, considered as a part of the people, has simply put on it “ a fat and definitive cross “. Speaking about a position of Russia, S.Lavrov has noticed that the Russian Federation is absolutely attached to a principle of territorial integrity of all neighbours which think of it in legal frameworks.
answering the second question addressed to Russia D.Milibendom, - on the relation of Moscow to application of force for a resolution of conflicts, - S.Lavrov has noted: “ We against use of force for settlement of conflicts everywhere, including in Yugoslavia, in Iraq, and also in Iran where no conflict is present, but in increasing frequency speak about it. We against application of force both in the Near East, and in the Caucasian region “. “ He/she is the mister M.Saakashvili - for application of force for settlement of conflicts in infringement of all agreements under which costs including the signature of the Georgian management “ - head has underlined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
D.Milibenda`s third question consists that the Russian Federation should ask itself a question as military victories and long-term interests of economic prosperity correspond.
“ mister D. Milibend answers this question in the speech itself, suggesting us to punish, but so that interests of Great Britain and other western countries have not suffered, that is by a principle “ gas we will take, but on conditions which ourselves will explain to Russia “ S.Lavrov has noted. As he said, all problems which arose with gas deliveries to Europe, have been connected not with infringements of contract obligations of Russia, and with problems of the countries of transit.
“ And when partners from the European Union speak to us about necessity to agree about the mechanism of the early prevention so that similar cases any more were not, we speak: “ Necessarily, but let`s include in this discussion the transit countries because all faults with deliveries to Europe arose exclusively because the transit countries anyhow selected the gas going to Europe, without having thus operating contracts with Russia on delivery of gas by it “ - head has concluded the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, having underlined that Russia is interested in the decision of these questions.
we will remind, before S.Lavrov has declared, making comments on D.Milibenda`s statement that safety in South Ossetia and Abkhazia will be reliably provided by own forces of republics and the Russian peacemakers. “ to the NATO block still nobody managed to be democratised “ - the head of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has underlined.
He also has paid attention to a number of actual errors in the information of the head of the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs which has declared that Russia has blocked ports, tunnels and other objects of an infrastructure in Georgia. As the head of the Russian foreign policy department has underlined, took place “ attack of the Georgian tanks, actions of installations “ Hailstones “ and aircraft on peace Tshinvalu “. “ And when say that do not want to understand, who the first has begun, we consider that here bashfulness and hypocrisy are inappropriate in relation to those who among night has been attacked “ - S.Lavrov is convinced.
on Tuesday the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Great Britain D.Milibend has expressed the sharp aversion of the decision of the Russian Federation about a recognition of independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia and has urged the international community to take the answer-back measures. Earlier the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Great Britain has declared that “ categorically does not accept “ the decision of Russia to recognise independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. According to the department, the given decision of the Russian Federation “ contradicts obligations which were incurred by Russia within the limits of UN Security Council resolutions “.
At this D.Milibend has critically passed an opinion on a possible exception of Russia from “ G8 “ (G8), however has noticed that relations of the West with Moscow should be reconsidered and about it. As he said, sounded on Wednesday in Kiev where the head of the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs has arrived on a visit, conference of Ministers for Foreign Affairs " in the near future will be called; the big seven “ - unprecedented event from the moment of acceptance of Russia in club of the most developed democratic states.
we will remind, on August, 26th the president of Russia Dmitry Medvedev has informed that has signed decrees about a recognition the Russian Federation independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and has urged other countries to follow to this example.
Performance of the Russian president has taken place next day after both chambers of Federal Meeting of the Russian Federation have addressed to it with the request to recognise independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
