Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said during a press conference at the G20 summit that US actions to send warships to the Black Sea and the demonstration of the American flag there do not add stability to the region, RIA Novosti reports.
The day before, the American destroyer Porter, armed with cruise missiles, entered the Black Sea, now it is being watched by the forces and means of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
According to Lavrov, Washington is actively trying to push the coastal Black Sea countries that are members of NATO to pursue a confrontational policy, but Moscow is ready for any threats and is able to ensure security in the Black Sea.
In addition, the minister noted that the plans of the alliance to create new military bases on the coast of Romania and Bulgaria do not meet the interests of good neighborliness in the Black Sea region. Russia has no information about NATO’s intentions, but the facts indicate a lack of desire to cooperate, added the head of the diplomatic service.
Sergey Lavrov also said that at dinner at the October 30 summit he managed to talk with US President Joe Biden.
On Sunday, October 31, the leaders of the G20 countries adopted a final communiqué at the Rome summit. In particular, they recognized the need to achieve global carbon neutrality by the middle of this century and pledged to work to ensure that the world has enough coronavirus vaccines.
