Russia is against taking advantage of internal disagreements to change the regimes in the Middle East and North Africa. It is unacceptable to determine from outside who is the best leader.

This was declared by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at a reception in Moscow on the occasion of the Muslim New Year.

Moscow welcomes the Arab nations’ aspiration for a better life and democracy but this should be achieved without using force, the minister emphasized. He also pointed out that “the states themselves should respect human rights”.

Lavrov said that Russia is developing close contacts with the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the League of Arab States and the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf.
