Moscow hosted a traditional annual meeting of the Russian Federation's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov with the ambassadors of the CIS member states, during a working breakfast on Jan.11, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Urgent issues of cooperation within the Commonwealth in the context of the outcome of Russia's presidency in the organization in 2010, as well as the tasks facing the CIS in the coming period, were discussed.

The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) is a regional international organization, as per an international agreement, designed to regulate the cooperation and relations between the countries, which were member of the former Soviet Union earlier. CIS is not a super-state formation and functions on a voluntary basis. The Commonwealth includes Azerbaijan and all countries of the former Soviet Union except three Baltic countries and Georgia.
