Russian, Chinese, Indian FMs discuss new Asia-Pacific security architecture
Meeting in New Delhi Sunday, the Foreign Ministers of Russia, India and China looked into ways to equip Asia and the Pacific with a radically new international relations and security architecture.
Emerging from the Delhi meeting, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said this architecture should meet the challenges of a world where threats become global, national borders no longer guarantee protection, security precautions have to be shared and egoistic attempts to build security unilaterally at the expense of other nations are grossly counterproductive and have to be opposed.
He also said that the latest East Asian summit in Brunei on October 10th approved an initiative by Russia, Brunei and China to use summits of this kind to hammer out guiding principles for cooperation on regional security matters. Mr Lavrov thanked India for supporting this initiative.
He also announced plans to start consultations on regional security issues in Brunei in the near future. The dialogue will involve the countries that send delegates to the East Asian summits. The agenda will be dominated by a new security architecture for Asia and the Pacific.
