Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed that there are no political or legislative grounds to change Moscow’s foreign policy course after the State Duma elections scheduled for September.
“I don’t see any political or legislative reasons for this foreign policy course to change. It is approved by the president in accordance with the Russian constitution. That’s what we are guided by,” the minister said on Friday.
He underlined that all four parliament factions are currently actively working with the diplomatic agency to advance this course.
“Overall, this [foreign policy] course enjoys a broad support in the society, which helps us to work,” Lavrov said, adding that he felt this support in real life during his trips around Russia.
