Moscow sees no need to establish military blocs in the Asian-Pacific region, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after meeting with his Philippine counterpart Perfecto Yasay. According to the Russian top diplomat, all regional disputes should be solved on a universal, non-bloc basis.
"As for military blocs, we believe that the security issues in the Asian-Pacific region should be solved on a universal, non-bloc basis so that all countries of the region would know that there are some agreements ensuring equal and indivisible security for all of them," Lavrov stated.
