    MOSCOW, February 17, 2004 (RIA Novosti correspondent Olga Protasenko) - Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov hopes Europe will adequately address Russia's concern about the situation with the Russian speaking population in Latvia and Estonia.

    The Russian foreign minister and Solomon Passy, the Foreign Minster of Bulgaria, which is presiding at the Organisation for Co-operation and Security in Europe, discussed the observance of the Russian-speaking population's rights in these Baltic republics at their Moscow meeting on Tuesday.

    Mr Ivanov said at a press conference that he had forwarded relative letters to the European foreign ministers and international organisations and hoped they would react adequately to Russia's concerns on the matter.
