EU commitment on Caucasus to remain in force - Russian Foreign Minister
Security guarantees in South Caucasus will not be affected after the Czech Republic assumes the EU presidency, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
"As for the EU guarantees of non-use of force in the Caucasus, they will remain in force," Lavrov told Vesti-24 TV channel on Monday. The talks over a new basic EU-Russia agreement have resumed, he said.
Russia will not insist on the short-term development of the agreement because "the document should include a new quality of partnership with the EU," he said, reported Interfax.
