05.02.2016 - Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, February 4, 2016

On February 10, 2016, we will mark Diplomats' Day for the fourteenth time. Different events will be held with the participation of Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and high-ranking ministry officials. I’d like to say a few words about the history of this date. You know everything about it, but it is always worth repeating. As you know, this day was endorsed as our professional holiday by a presidential executive order in 2002.

05.02.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State John Kerry

On February 4, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State John Kerry on the initiative of the US side. Mr Lavrov and Mr Kerry discussed the current status of the Syrian peace settlement in great detail. Mr Lavrov and Mr Kerry expressed regret at the fact that the intra-Syrian dialogue, launched in Geneva several days ago under UN auspices, had been put on hold, and they agreed to take the necessary efforts in order to make this pause as short as possible.

04.02.2016 - Press release on Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov’s meeting on the sidelines of intra-Syrian talks in Geneva

On February 3, Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov met with a delegation of the intra-Syrian opposition that includes representatives of a wide range of public and political organisations. Members of the opposition delegation noted the legitimate right of those opponents of the Syrian authorities, who have never left the country and who know all about the real situation in Syria, to take part in the talks on an equal footing. The opposition stressed that they are ready to play a positive role in resolving the Syrian crisis by political methods.

04.02.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with Italian magazine Limes, published on February 4, 2016

Question: Who has provoked the Ukrainian crisis? Was Moscow aware of the geopolitical, economic and reputational price it would have to pay for Crimea’s reunification with Russia? Do you think it was too high in the context of Russian-Ukrainian relations? Is there a lasting solution to the Ukrainian crisis? Sergey Lavrov: The Ukrainian crisis was not incidental, but rather the result of systemic problems that have been accumulating in European affairs and international relations over the past two decades.

03.02.2016 - Foreign Ministry statement on North Korea’s upcoming ballistic missile launch

We are seriously concerned about reports on an upcoming ballistic missile launch in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. We are forced to state that, by once again violating the resolutions of the UN Security Council, the North Korean side is displaying glaring disdain for generally recognised norms of international law.

I’m sincerely pleased to be in Abu Dhabi on another visit. We regularly meet with Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan at various international forums. He has come to Moscow as well. We had very useful talks yesterday and today. I have just had a meeting with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. This meeting, as well as my contacts with the UAE Foreign Minister and the leaders of the UAE Supreme Council for National Security, has reaffirmed our mutual desire to further deepen our cooperation in all areas.

I’d like to say that I’m satisfied with the talks I had during my meeting with the President of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. We discussed all the fundamental aspects of our ongoing cooperation and the agreements reached by the presidents of Russia and Turkmenistan, including those secured at their meeting in Tehran in late November 2015. We pointed to the major progress that has been achieved in bilateral trade and economic cooperation in terms of their results and, most importantly, their potential.
