The Russian Embassy in Skopje posted yesterday on its official Facebook page a photo of meeting of Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, with Foreign Minister and OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Bujar Osmani, and Malta’s Foreign Minister, Ian Borg, who, as the Embassy said, is Osmani’s successor.

As the Russian Foreign Ministry said, there was a discussion on the OSCE situation, while the Russian representatives highlighted that for the Organisation to be able to overcome the current crisis and return to its normal activities, it was necessary for mutual respect and equal dialogue between participating States to continue, for the fundamental rule of consensus to be respected, and for there to be strict compliance with the OSCE’s rules.
