It was initiated by Russia, Lebanon and the Vatican with Armenia’s support,” he said responding to a question about the possible support by Russia of the initiative to protection Christians in the light of the situation in Kenya.
“This issue was raised in the UN. Specific mechanisms should be used when working on it, including the Human Rights Council and a whole number of other structures, specifically those preventing discrimination,” Lavrov said.
