Russia calls for no imposed settlement on international problems
Moscow, Mar 27 - Russia believes that only understanding and agreement between the involved parties could lead to the solution of long-standing international problems.
In a review of Russian foreign policy, approved by President Vladimir Putin, the Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry says that any conflicts in Kosovo, Cyprus and elsewhere should be solved ''through agreement between the sides,'' adding that ''only such a settlement could be stable.''
It adds that efforts to impose settlements from outside undermine the bases of international law and could lead to the destabilization of the whole system of international affairs.
In its 80-page review, which is a synopsis of Russian foreign policy, the Ministry also notes that the UN remains an international forum, the backbone of the international system of collective security, a central element of modern multilateral diplomacy.
