Details: The Russian Foreign Ministry posted a photo of Lavrov and Blanár shaking hands.

In 2022, Lavrov and Russian President Vladimir Putin were added to the European Union’s sanctions list. Since then, of all EU countries, only Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó had met with Lavrov.

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said the meeting was an example of “our balanced and sovereign Slovak foreign policy towards all sides of the world”. The foreign ministers reportedly discussed the opportunities that the peace summit in Switzerland could bring.

“I knew about this meeting and I strongly recommended that he meet with the Russian minister,” Fico said.

The meeting took place at a diplomatic forum in Antalya, Türkiye. In addition to Blanár, Lavrov also met with representatives of Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Eswatini.
