Lavrov: "Life will put everything in its place"

Moscow can see Western countries' reluctance to communicate on an equal footing on various platforms but is calm about it, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday (4 February). Lavrov who is currently on an official visit to Kyrgyzstan was speaking at the Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University in the capital Bishkek

The Russian news agency TASS said Lavrov regretted that Russian calls for building contacts between the Eurasian Economic Commission and the European Commission, as well as between the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and the European Union, and between the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and NATO were not being heeded. "We can see that our Western colleagues are reluctant to communicate on an equal footing on various platforms," he said. "We are calm about it. Arrogance and a sense of superiority never made anyone more attractive," Lavrov noted.

"There will come a time when life will put everything in its place," the Russian top diplomat added.

Lavrov is visiting Bishkek to prepare for the official visit of president Putin to the Central Asian republic, scheduled for 1 March. On Monday, Lavrov also met with the President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov.
