"Conference participants will surely pay attention to the recent Caucasus crisis. The act of aggression at the night of August, 8th led to numerous victims among civilians, including Russian citizens", - said Lavrov in his interview (The Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Thursday).
According to the Minister, "the tragedy urged a number of appeals - from the Coordination Council of Russian Compatriots, national and regional organizations, the International Council of Russian Compatriots, from representatives of the diaspora. They all supported the actions of Russia and showed sympathy with their South Ossetian compatriots".
The Foreign Minister pointed out that "regular meetings of compatriots have become a daily routine both in Russia and Russian world. Perhaps, it's one of the most remarkable achievements of our work with the Russian diaspora, and it makes the running of our further co-work".
"At the same time, the experience of our interaction demands the further thinking of the ways to unite the Russian world, to work out the best strategy and tactics necessary to preserve the identity of the diaspora, to enhance the protection of the rights and legitimate interests of the compatriots, to enhance the prestige of Russia in the world", - Lavrov said. "In practice, it led to establishment of the global Coordination Council and coordination councils in the majority of Russian communities in different countries. Just a few days ago the Coordination Council was established in a country with the biggest Russian diaspora - in the Ukraine. The Ukranian delegation is going to be the largest on the coming conference", - Lavrov said.
