Lavrov to NATO: Moscow Will No Longer Allow Repeat of Tragedies as in Iraq and Libya – Al Marsad

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Moscow will no longer allow a repetition of the tragedies that occurred in Iraq, Libya, and other countries, where NATO violated the human right to life.

(LIBYA, 1 June 2021) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, at a press conference with the Portuguese Foreign Minister, Augusto Santos Silva, on Monday, said: “I hope our Western colleagues will remember that life is a person’s most treasured possession, whoever they are and wherever they live.”

He stressed that Moscow will no longer allow a repetition of the tragedies that occurred in Iraq, Libya and the former Yugoslavia, when NATO “trampled upon by our NATO colleagues in a most brutal and illegal way.”

At the same time, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stressed that Russia would be ready to resume dialogue with NATO, but talks should not be empty words.

“Of course we will be ready to resume dialogue,” said Lavrov, adding “but it must not be devoid of common sense.” He said, “We do not want to hear one-sided statements by NATO officials at every meeting of the Russia-NATO Council whereby they publicly accuse us of everything in the Ukrainian crisis. We want the Russia-NATO Council to focus on security issues.”

The Russian Foreign Minister added that Moscow expects a response to many of the Russian proposals, which have been considered by NATO for more than a year, and the adoption of which could greatly help calm the still tense situation.
