Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov arrived in Berlin for a one-day working visit in Friday
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov arrived in Berlin for a one-day working visit in Friday. He will hold talks with his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mikhail Kamynin said “it is planned to discuss a wide range of matters with an accent on the check of stances on important international issues, including the situation in the Middle East in the context of a meeting of the Middle East ‘quartet’ in Lisbon and settlement in Kosovo”. The future status of the province of Kosovo is reviewed in the UN Security Council on Friday. The US and its Western partners insist on the quick adoption of a new resolution based on a plan of the UN secretary-general’s special envoy Martti Ahtisaari. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who attended the ministerial meeting of the “quartet” together with Lavrov, said on Thursday that Serbia’s province of Kosovo would get the independence despite Russia’s objections. Lavrov said “Moscow’s principled position is in favor of the search for a negotiated solution to the Kosovo problem that would be acceptable for Belgrade and Prisitna”. Serbia’s ambassador to Russia Stanimir Vukicevic said in an interview to ITAR-TASS that “any decision on the status of the province should be based on international law and not on a unilateral or imposed decision”. The text of the resolution “was based on the plan of Ahtisaari, who openly talks about Kosovo’s independence,” he said. Lavrov’s visit to Berlin includes his attending a ceremony of decorating Russian Ambassador to Germany Vladimir Kotenev with the Order of Friendship. The Russia minister will return to Moscow in the evening.
