The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is strengthening its authority at the international level, namely on the sidelines of the UN and G20 summits, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
Moreover, this voice is very constructive. It is, in fact, an alternative to those who want to establish dominance in world affairs. First of all, these are our Western colleagues, - stated diplomat on the air of the Russia 1 TV channel.
According to him, the SCO can provide stable conditions for economic and social development on the territory of its member states. The minister also noted that Russia does not support the US policy of "being friends against" China or anyone else. According to him, the Russian side assesses Washington's corresponding calls to international partners "as a policy that is alien to us."
Lavrov noted that a completely different diplomatic and political culture is developed in Russia. He explained that the country's authorities are striving to develop good relations with everyone, and with whom the connection deepens, the Russian Federation never demands a deliberate deterioration in relations with states that “do not arouse sympathy from Washington or anyone else”.
