Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed that the hybrid wars waged by Western countries will not be able to stop the development of new centers of economic and political power in the world.
“The formation of a multipolar world is an objective and unstoppable process, and despite the attempts of the collective West, the United States, NATO and the European Union, which are completely under Washington’s control, to reverse this process, this will not benefit them,” Novosti agency quoted Lavrov as saying in a press conference. All these endeavors of theirs will be futile, and the most they can count on is some slowing down of the objective course of history.
Lavrov stressed that any mixed wars, including those waged by the West in Ukraine, will be unable to stop the development of new centers of economic power and financial and political influence, explaining that “countries such as China and India outperform the United States in many respects, just as other countries such as Egypt Brazil and Latin American countries are developing as independent and influential centers, and all of these are future centers of multipolarity.
The Russian Foreign Minister pointed out that there is no doubt that Africa is one of the most important centers that has enormous potential, as it is a rich continent in terms of natural resources, which have been exploited for many centuries by the West.
Lavrov stressed that "the clocks of multipolar history are moving in the right direction."
Lavrov pointed out that the Western media tried to distort the visit of the Russian delegation to African countries.
As an example, the minister pointed to an article by "Euronews" channel, commenting on his visit to South Africa, in which it was stated that Lavrov went there despite the "negative reaction it causes in the country."
On another issue, Lavrov announced that Russia and Eritrea are planning a detailed study of the possibility of using the logistical capabilities of the port of Massawa and transit through the airport of this city, adding: "The Eritrean side is interested in this issue, and we are ready to help."
Lavrov noted the formation of a joint mechanism between the two countries for consultation in the fields of trade, economy and investment. The two sides will also work to strengthen the legal framework for bilateral relations and accelerate the signing of a number of documents, including a memorandum on cultural cooperation and an agreement on mutual recognition of academic degrees.
