Sergei Lavrov will meet with the European Troika in Moscow on Monday to discuss future cooperation
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will meet with the European Troika in Moscow on Monday to discuss future cooperation, mainly in energy. The Troika delegation includes EU Commissioner for External Relations Benita Ferrero-Waldner, EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy Javier Solana, and Germany’s Foreign Minister and the President of the EU Council Frank-Walter Steinmeier. High on the agenda will be energy, the situations in the Middle East, Iran, Kosovo as well as problems in the neighbouring countries - the Caucasus, Moldova and Belarus. In an interview with Itar-Tass, Benita Ferrero-Waldner said the delegates will consider prospects for 2007, discuss energy issues and the need for remaining reliable partners. She pointed out that the EU relies on Russia that supplies 25 percent of oil and gas the European countries consume. The commissioner said the EU and Russia are important partners in resolving international problems. Close cooperation with Russia on such key issues as the Middle East, Iran and Kosovo is vitally important. Benita Ferrero-Waldner believes Russia and the EU can do much more in relation to their common neighbours - Moldova and Georgia - to resolve frozen conflicts. In her words, Russia is EU’s very important partner on the Middle East, mainly within the framework of the Middle East Quartet comprising the EU, U.S., UN and Russia. As for Iran, she said, Russia and the EU agree that no new nuclear weapons should appear in the world and the most important thing is to put into effect measures of UN Security Council Resolution 1737.
