Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of the G20 summit said that the lack of demand for attempts to promote unilateral approaches in international relations was the main conclusion of the meeting in Rome.
Most of the participants, he said, were in favor of the G20 setting an example in finding collective solutions that would balance interests.
Lavrov assessed the results of the summit as a whole as very positive. The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry noted that the main tendencies that need to be supported in every possible way are the desire for collective work, TASS reports.
These are areas such as combating climate change and countering a pandemic. It is obvious that the G20 countries want mutual recognition of certificates of vaccination against coronavirus, the minister added.
The leaders of the G20 countries on October 31 adopted a final communiqué at the summit in Rome. They recognized the need to achieve global zero greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century and called for action to limit the rise in global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
In addition, the leaders have pledged to work to ensure that all countries have enough vaccines to reach 70% of the world’s population by the middle of next year.
