There’s been talk by the US for over a decade already about a so-called “New Middle East”, a vague concept which was never officially described by American officials yet has been heavily speculated upon by the expert community, both within the country and abroad.
The SecurityCouncil, Recalling its resolutions 1373 (2001), 1624 (2005), 2178 (2014) and the Statement of its President (S/PRST/2016/6) of 11 May 2016, Affirming its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security, in accordance with the Charter of the

Mr Minister,Ladies and gentlemen, We have held very useful talks. Cyprus is our reliable and time-tested partner in Europe. Our ties are based on sincere feelings of friendship and the sympathies of our peoples, on their spiritual and cultural affinity.We examined the state of our bilateral affairs. We are satisfied with our intensive and result-oriented political dialogue. We noted that after a major setback in bilateral trade for well-known reasons, there has been a trend toward growth in trade in recent months. We discussed contacts between our foreign ministries, our joint work at international organizations. We considered the educational and humanitarian exchanges that are extremely robust and attract large numbers of Russian and Cypriot participants.
The result is clear. Two third of the votes were for Emmanuel Macron, president of the social-democratic party “En marche” and one third for Marine Le Pen, president of the National Front. Mrs Le Pen has lost some points after the debate at the French television, four days before the vote. Macron made then a better performance. Macron celebrated his victory in the yard of the castle « Le Louvre », before the masonic pyamid in glass and he listened to the National Anthem with his hand on his heart as American presidents do, but also as Free Masons do in their private meetings in sign of fraternity. However, the general public did not notice the meaning of these symbols.
Today I had a bilateral meeting with State Secretary Rex Tillerson at the US State Department, and then we both had a meeting with President Trump.
We focused on our interaction in the international arena. It was confirmed that, despite all the known difficulties, our countries can and should join efforts to address key issues of the international agenda.

Human rights phenomenon is one of the “eternal” questions of the human being which means it has to always be in the center of the general dispute. To date, the provisions of human rights protection and adherence have become integral part of the international law’s general sphere (1). But the process of the global civilization transforming into a interrelated global system has once again sparkled a discussion of the human rights definition, the universal views of human rights, their spreading and cultural relativism. These problems have long become one of the key parts on the global agenda.
Good evening,
This has been a long day. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and I held talks, followed by a lengthy meeting with President of Russia Vladimir Putin, which lasted for more than two hours.
The talks were detailed and frank, covering the whole range of issues that are key to our bilateral relations and interaction on international matters.
It was stated that the current stage in our bilateral relations and in the international situation is quite unstable. There are many issues, including those left by Barack Obama’s administration as delayed action mines. We are realists and understand that serious efforts are needed to overcome these barriers. We are clearly committed to undertaking these efforts, while expecting our US colleagues to do the same. Today, President of Russia Vladimir Putin once again reaffirmed our unwavering commitment to moving in this direction.

1. Theresa May said today (Thur) that Russia was on the “wrong side of the argument” when it comes to Syria, what is your response to that?

Answer: With all my respect for Prime Minister Theresa May I’ve got to say that the opposite is true. Even former British Ambassador in Damascus Peter Ford (on the BBC the other day) said that there is no moderate opposition alternative to the present government is Syria. That’s why there is urgent need for lasting ceasefire and political process among the Syrians, so that they can decide for themselves. It seems that our Western partners don’t like this approach and want to decide for the Syrians who will take part in the political process and who shall not. I think the reason is they know well what the choice of the Syrians is going to be after the 6 years of civil war.

We have held very good and meaningful talks with Foreign Minister of Kyrgyzstan Erlan Abdyldaev. We had a frank exchange of opinions, as befits friends, strategic partners and allies.
We pointed out that our relations are based on the feeling of friendship, sympathy between our people, shared interests and the fundamental principles of equality and mutual respect and advantage.
