    Russian Foreign Minister said that Moscow will continue its efforts to improve the situation in the world with respect to international law.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Moscow will continue its efforts to improve the situation in the world with respect to international law, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.

    "Russia will continue its consistent policy designed to improve the situation in the world relying on international law in order to provide freedom of choice to each nation, to cultivate partnerships between the leading world religions, cultures and civilizations based on mutual respect," Lavrov said.

    He added that the attempts to impose values and development models on other nations led to instability and the intensification of contradictions and the degradation of the international situation in the Middle East and North Africa.

    In October, Lavrov said that the increasing threat of terrorism and extremism’s advance in the Middle East and North Africa came as a result of external interference in weak state institutions in the countries of the region.
