Putin Formulates Guidelines of Moscow's Foreign-Policy Strategy

Underlying the Russian foreign-policy strategy is "the idea of broad multilateral cooperation for combating the new threats", president of Russia Vladimir Putin stated in the message of greeting to the participants in the youth conference Moscow International Model of UNO-2003. Deputy head of the presidential administration Sergei Prikhodko read out the message of the head of the Russian state at the forum.

The document notes, in particular, that "at the end of the 20th century mankind did away with the cold war". The tasks of world historic significance were thereby accomplished and the threat of a global nuclear war was practically eliminated.

The president notes that at the same time "new global challenges - international terrorism, drugs trade, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, financial-economic crises, environmental catastrophes and mass epidemics - have replaced this threat". Furthermore, quite a number of new regional conflicts has emerged, he stressed.

The president pointed out that "the Russian foreign-policy strategy is based on the idea of broad multilateral cooperation for combating the new threats". "Precisely this stipulates our support of the UNO in the cause of strengthening international stability and security, and special attention is paid to strengthening the anti-crisis potential of the ONU", the message notes.
