Russian foreign minister to visit 4 Balkan states
02:07 19/04/2011

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will set off on Tuesday on a Balkan tour with an extensive diplomatic and economic agenda, the Foreign Ministry said.

During the three-day tour, Lavrov will visit Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Slovenia to discuss the situation in the region, bilateral economic ties and some urgent issues on the global political agenda.

The minister will make the fist stop on the itinerary in Belgrade. Serbia is Russia's key partner on the Balkans. The countries cooperate on a variety of major energy projects, including the construction of Serbia's section of the South Stream gas pipeline. Russia also backs Serbia on the issue of Kosovo independence.

Lavrov's trip to Montenegro will focus on economic agenda. According to the ministry, Russia's direct investment in Montenegro totaled $120 million in 2010. The countries also aim to expand cultural ties.

During the visit to Macedonia, Lavrov will discuss the expansion of trade and investment cooperation and key European security issues.

The visit coincides with the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Imperial consulate - the first Russian diplomatic mission in this part of the Balkans.

Lavrov will wrap up the tour with a visit to Slovenia on April 21. He will meet with his counterpart Samuel Zbogar and Slovenian President Danilo Turk to discuss the implementation of the recent bilateral agreements aimed at further expansion of economic and cultural ties.

The general agenda of the tour also includes discussions on the current situation in North Africa and the Middle East, the ministry said.

MOSCOW, April 19 (RIA Novosti)

Moscow queries Montenegro's NATO membership plans
12:06 19/04/2011

MOSCOW, April 19 (RIA Novosti) - NATO expansion to include Montenegro will not make anyone more secure, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.

Montenegro was granted a Membership Action Plan in December 2009 and is expected to complete the accession process and join NATO by 2012.

"Our attitude to NATO enlargement is well known and does not depend on political considerations of expediency or the geographic vector," he said in an interview with the Montenegrin newspaper Pobeda.

He indicated that Russia's principal objection is that the bloc's military infrastructure is advancing toward the Russian borders.

"The striving to expand NATO 'by inertia' in an entirely new situation, where there is no bipolar world and when the confrontation between the two military blocs is a thing of the past, does not add any more security either to new members or to the organization as a whole," Lavrov said.
