The Russian Foreign Ministry has prepared a new version of the country's foreign policy concept, its main outlines were discussed at a meeting of the Security Council. According to Peskov, recently the country's foreign policy documents "are undergoing changes".
“You know that literally a week earlier, at the operational meeting of the permanent members of the Security Council, the main outlines of our new foreign policy concept were considered. And it will be improved”, - RIA Novosti quotes Peskov as saying.
As Kommersant clarifies, the concept will be adjusted "just in view of what is happening now".
According to the authorities, the draft updated version of the country's foreign policy concept prepared by the Russian Foreign Ministry took into account "significant changes that have taken place in international politics over the past five years".
The new vectors of the country's foreign policy are dictated by the complication of foreign policy relations taking place against the backdrop of growing tensions in eastern Ukraine, as well as the reaction of NATO countries to new challenges. The conflict between Russia and the West over the guarantees of security in Europe proposed by the Russian Foreign Ministry does not add optimism either.
The concept, supported by China, did not find approval from the US and the EU, what is happening has provoked a new round of tension in relations between the West and Russia. Against the backdrop of the deepening crisis of the "new cold war", a number of observers point out that the harbingers of the current situation were visible as early as 2007, some of their features were reflected in Putin's famous "Munich speech".
