MOSCOW, October 22 (RIA Novosti) - Attempts to "impose its recipes on everyone else," by a certain group of nations are undermining international efforts, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday.
"A mark of our time is the redistribution of resources in the world structure. The domination of a single civilization is becoming history; new centers of economic growth and financial powers are emerging. And with economic and financial influence comes a political one. We are seeing it in a number of cases," the minister said in a meeting with representatives of the Russian Youth Public Chamber.
"Thus, the world is becoming truly polycentric, multipolar. Competition is intensifying - not only in economy, finance, politics, but also in the area of values, development models," Russia’s Foreign Ministry chief concluded.
