Gulf countries will not impose sanctions on Russia: Sergei Lavrov

 Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said recently that the West is breaching international law.

He also warned that “no country has the right to increase its security at the expense of another.”

“Our Gulf partners did not join the Western sanctions imposed on Russia,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said the Gulf’s position on the Ukrainian crisis is “unified.”

Lavrov’s statements came during the General Secretariat of the GCC in Riyadh after a joint meeting between the foreign ministers of the GCC countries and the Russian Foreign Minister.

 He believes that “the West is aiming to construct a unipolar world dominated by the US.

He commended the Yemeni sides’ cease-fire, which is set to expire on Thursday (June 2), and expressed hope that it would be prolonged, stating that Moscow “will endeavor to launch a political process with the UN and its representatives in Yemen’s backing.”

” “One of the key causes in the current situation in Ukraine is Kyiv’s abandonment of the Minsk Agreement’s pledges,” he stated.

Lavrov also emphasized the necessity of working across the OPEC + group for Russia in a distinct context. “The ideas of the partnership remain relevant on this basis (OPEC +),” he said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov arrived in Riyadh on Tuesday after visiting Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa for the Gulf Cooperation Council’s sixth joint ministerial meeting and Russia’s strategic dialogue.

The GCC has issued a position urging Russia and Ukraine to “prioritize diplomacy” to reconcile their stances and stop the conflict.

During a meeting with his Russian counterpart on Tuesday, the Saudi foreign minister said, “The kingdom supports efforts to develop a political solution that ends the crisis in Ukraine and achieves security and stability.”
