Europe’s desire to force values on other states caused it troubles repeatedly, says Lavrov

European values are not universal, and the desire to impose them on other countries has repeatedly caused trouble to Europe itself, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview Thursday.

When asked whether he believes that the EU’s current position opens limited possibilities for partnership, but a large potential for confrontation, Lavrov said he agrees with this idea.

"This is missionization - this habit to lecture, this illusion of own superiority. It is important to see this trend, which has repeatedly caused trouble to Europe," Lavrov said.

The top diplomat reminded that the European Union was initially established as the Coal and Steel Community, which later became the European Economic Community.
