Russia's foreign ministry has published full draft declarations on basic relations with Latvia and Estonia
Russia's foreign ministry has published full draft declarations on basic relations with Latvia and Estonia. The ministry's information and press department said in a statement that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had handed over the draft political declarations on the fundamentals of relations with Latvia and Estonia to those countries' foreign ministers at the December 9, 2004 meeting in Brussels. Russia suggested that the documents should be signed in Moscow on May 10, at the Russia-Baltic republics summit. Such documents are widespread in modern Europe. Russia has signed similar declarations with the majority of European Union countries, including Lithuania. By taking the initiative, Russia intended to work out a document that would settle differences with these countries or outline ways to settle them and outline cooperation guidelines to make bilateral relations friendlier and mutually beneficial. "Riga and Tallinn have not responded to the initiative and the draft declarations to date. They have chosen to comment on the documents publicly, publishing extracts or the full texts of the declarations in local media. Under the circumstances, the Russian Foreign Ministry decided to publish the full texts of the two documents," the ministry says. "Moscow deems it important to discuss the documents together and thereby achieve better understanding and raise relations with these countries to a higher level," the statement says. The draft political declarations are available on the Russian foreign ministry's web site
