Today there was another briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova. Traditionally, the correspondent of The Moscow Post asked his question.

The first question of the journalist of our publication concerned the situation on the Korean Peninsula.

The US Secretary of Defense has declared a "commitment to peace" on the Korean Peninsula, but the situation is drifting towards conflict.

"Russia has so far officially refrained from assessing, isn't it? What experts from the Russian Foreign Ministry think about options for smoothing out raised tones, "the journalist asked.

Maria Zakharova noted that this topic was previously commented on in detail by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and indicated that she had spoken out on this topic during a briefing.

In her statement a little earlier, the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry pointed out that the visit of the US Secretary of Defense is not only a destabilization of the situation in the Asia-Pacific region, but also targeted actions to draw countries that do not belong to the area of ​ ​ responsibility of NATO or the European Union into the situation around Ukraine.

Another issue was raised by the development of Eurasian economic cooperation.

"Vladimir Putin, in a recent address to the EAEU members, urged to actively engage in the popularization of the Eurasian Economic Union, its achievements and opportunities. What is proposed to be done in this area through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs?, "- asked the correspondent of The Moscow Post.

Maria Zakharova pointed out that popularization refers to a tool for raising awareness of the population, business, foreign partners about the activities of the Eurasian Economic Union.

Diplomats talk about achievements, advantages, projects implemented, decisions made and events held. About what the EAEU is profitable, attractive and interesting. Such work is carried out by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on an ongoing basis, through publications in various sources, through interviews and events.
