01.10.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the situation in the Republic of Yemen

01.10.2014 - Interview by the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Alexander Lukashevich, to “Russia Today” information agency regarding the visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of North Korea, Ri Su Yong, to Russia

Question: The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Ri Su Yong, will make an official visit to Russia between the 30 September and 10 October. How would you characterize the general state of our bilateral relations? Answer: Our countries and peoples are linked by long and strong ties of friendship. The USSR was the first to recognise North Korea in 1948. Russia always tries to support and develop friendly, neighbourly and mutually beneficial relations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The build-up of constructive bilateral cooperation in all areas corresponds to the core interests of the people of the two countries.

01.10.2014 - Interview given by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, to the “Russia Today” TV channel and “Vesti nedeli” on “Rossiya” TV Channel, New York, 27 September 2013

Question: We are meeting right after your speech at the UN General Assembly. Perhaps, we heard criticism with regard to the United Nations for the first time in 10-15 years. Presidents of Brazil and Venezuela spoke about this. Many people protested near the UN building in the last months asking for the UN to be changed and reformed. Do you agree to this point of view? Do you think that the UN is an efficient body in today’s community? Sergey Lavrov: The United Nations cannot be more effective than member states, because the UN is not an abstract concept, it is an interstate organisation, which includes governments and these governments determine its agenda today. The Secretariat is engaged in the fulfilment of orders of governments.

01.10.2014 - Address by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to the 69th session of the UN General Assembly, New York, 27 September 2014

Distinguished Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen, There is growing evidence of the contradiction between the need for collective, cooperative efforts to provide adequate responses to challenges common to all, and the aspirations of a number of countries for domination and the revival of archaic bloc thinking based on military drill discipline and the erroneous logic of “friend or foe.”
