BELGRADE – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday urged unity in the fight against terrorism, noting that the 1999 bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) was the opening of Pandora’s box and that the consequences, which are felt to this day, are no contribution to solving the crisis in Ukraine.

Addressing the plenary meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Belgrade, he echoed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement at a UN General Assembly session that Middle Eastern countries must become involved in defeating the Islamic State and other paramilitary groups.

That is the main priority today, it is like fighting the Nazis in the past, he noted.

Speaking about the migrant crisis, Lavrov said that closer cooperation with partners in the Mediterranean region is required.

  1. Mr Lavrov, the greatest diplomat this world has seen. What the hell was in the minds of USA who basically controls and runs NATO, lest we actually forget, USA has no mind, no projection for the future, no comprehension of the consequences of its actions. It has truly wreaked havoc on the world this time round, it has no idea as usual in which direction to run. And still it is trying to run the show, despite being the cause. USA kicked off the whole maelstrom by bombing Yugoslavia, an action that it had no right to do and secured its name as murderous and mercenary.
