Many were interested in the results of the high level trilateral meeting of the presidents of China Mongolia and Russia and the economic corridor project involving these three countries. Mr Lavrov has expressed his support for the mechanism for meetings which has been established involving the three presidents.
Minister Lavrov also answered to the questions about the European sanctions imposed on Russia, saying: “No sanctions can bring positive results. Not only the country on which the sanctions are imposed suffers - both sides suffer”.
