Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s news conference on the sidelines of the BRICS and SCO summits in Ufa

During the summit in Moscow last May, Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Vladimir Putin signed a memorandum on the initiative to join Silk Road Economic Belt projects and the processes of Eurasian economic integration. Naturally, Russia and China are not the only two potential participants in these efforts. This issue concerns the entire EAEU. The initiative put forward by the leaders of our two countries is now being reviewed by our EAEU partners. Both Russia and China believe that SCO is a convenient venue for all the parties concerned to discuss specific aspects of this initiative. Our SCO partners are interested in discussing all aspects of joining Silk Road projects with Eurasian economic integration. Let me repeat that this is not just a Russian-Chinese project. It was suggested by their leaders but must have a multilateral dimension.

Our Partners:
  • EAEU
  • RIA Novosti
  • ITAR-TASS
  • Interfax
  • Rossiyskaya Gazeta
  • MGIMO University
  • St. Petersburg International Economic Forum
  • International Economy Forum «Caspian Dialogue»
  • The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation
  • Media support of celebrations to mark the 70th Anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War
  • International Investment Forum Sochi-2015
