19.11.2016 - Collectivism and connectivity at the heart of APEC (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

On 19–20 November 2016, Lima hosts regular meeting of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation. 21 countries’ leaders gather in order to discuss pressing global and regional economic issues. The Summit takes place against the background of global political and economic turbulence. The ongoing shaping of new polycentric world order is accompanied by growing instability. In the Asia Pacific, the effects of these tendencies have been mitigated by major technological and financial potential that has enabled the region to maintain its leading positions in world affairs. However, it is evident that the growing challenges will have a negative impact on the prospects of long-term growth in the region.

18.11.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s answers to media questions on the sidelines of the APEC Ministerial Meeting, Lima, November 17, 2016

Question: US President Barack Obama has just said he hopes President-elect Donald Trump will continue to stand up to Russia where it is allegedly deviating from international norms. What do you think about this recommendation? Sergey Lavrov: This is regrettable, because when you conclude your presidential term you should answer questions and offer recommendations on positive aspects regarding solutions to America’s domestic problems, of which there are many, and the development of foreign relations. I do not think it is good to try to ensure continuity on negative issues.


18.11.2016 - OPCW decision on Syria is deeply regrettable (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

The decision ensures unlimited inspections of the Syria’s military infrastructure and research facilities, which provide for the basic economic needs of the country, and in some cases the region as a whole. According to those who initiated and ensured the adoption of this decision, such inspections would ultimately allow the OPCW to assume total control over the defence, research and technological capacities of the sovereign state of Syria, which has been seriously undermined by the war that is being ignited and actively sponsored by external forces.

Russia has been consistently advocating prosecuting those responsible for the most serious international crimes.

These were the reasons why Russia voted for the adoption of the Rome Statute and signed it on September 13, 2000.


17.11.2016 - Article by Sergey Lavrov APEC: Genuine Collectivism and Effective Connectivity

On 19–20 November 2016, Lima will host regular meeting of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation. 21 countries’ leaders will gather in order to discuss pressing global and regional economic issues and chart future tasks. The Summit will take place against the background of global political and economic turbulence. The ongoing shaping of new polycentric world order is accompanied by growing instability. There are increasing risks posed by terrorism and extremism, regional conflicts and migration crisis. "Information wars" are incited in order to undermine sovereign states. Some countries pursue the same nefarious purpose by resorting increasingly often to illegal unilateral trade and financial sanctions challenging the exclusive prerogative of the United Nations Security Council.
