29.06.2017 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at the opening ceremony of the 14th Conference of Russian and German Partner Cities, Krasnodar, June 28, 2017

First of all, I would like to thank the Krasnodar Territory authorities for the hospitality and warm welcome they have accorded us. I am pleased at this opportunity, together with the leadership of this territory and this city, to welcome my German colleague Sigmar Gabriel. I am greatly honoured to take part in the opening ceremony of the 14th Conference of Russian and German Partner Cities. This forum, which took over from Karlsruhe, is an important event in the vast array of bilateral interregional and people-to-people contacts. Considering the current situation in Europe, when relations between our states – to put it bluntly – are going through hard times, such depoliticised cooperation is an important element in fostering an atmosphere of trust and mutual understanding between nations and countries. Taking advantage of this opportunity, I would particularly like to note the contribution made by the Sister Cities international association to preparing this event and fostering Russian-German cooperation in general.


29.06.2017 - Joint statement by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on the Russian-German Year of Regional and Municipal Partnerships in 2017-18

Following the successful Year of Russian-German Youth Exchanges in 2016-17, we plan to deepen our contacts, mutual understanding and trust in Russian-German relations by further expanding cooperation at the municipal and regional level. A special role here is played by extensive partnership ties between federal lands, regions, districts, cities and municipalities, as well as between public associations, universities and schools. Such ties form the foundation of active Russian-German relations. Many of these partnerships will be marking their 25th anniversary in 2017 and 2018. We intend to draw public attention to these partnerships and use the momentum they generate to expand partnership ties between Germans and Russians, thereby strengthening mutual trust. We are confident that municipal and regional partnerships are a pivotal element of Russian-German cooperation.

I would like to join our colleagues in expressing condolences to the family of Joseph Stone. His death is a heavy loss for his family and friends and a severe blow to the peace-making efforts of the Special Monitoring Mission and the OSCE. We hope the truth in this case will be established soon and those responsible will be held accountable.
