Russian fleet maintains stability in Mediterranean - Lavrov

The Russian fleet's presence in the Mediterranean is a stabilizing factor for the region, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"We are not interested in even more destabilization in the Mediterranean region, and our fleet's presence there is certainly a factor stabilizing the situation," Lavrov said at a press conference summing up 2012 events on Wednesday.

Russia’s Lavrov calls for unity amid global transition

Moscow will continue to respond to U.S. unfriendly moves but its primary guideline is the readiness to develop Russian-U.S. relations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a Moscow press conference on results of 2012.

"Certainly, we will continue to respond to unfriendly moves but the core of our position is the readiness to develop Russian-U.S. relations in all areas and the interest in coordinated actions on the international scene based on equality, mutual respect for interests and non-interference in each other's internal affairs," the minister said.
