"Not yet, Mr. Natwar"

Vladimir Radyuhin

VLADIVOSTOK: The India-Russia bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the trilateral dialogue here on Thursday had a lighter side to it.

During an interaction with the media, External Affairs Minister Natwar Singh thanked "the Soviet Union and other countries" for their support to India in its bid for a U.N. Security Council seat.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov immediately reacted saying, "Not yet, not yet," the obvious implication being that it was not yet time for Russia to rally back the former Soviet republics. The joke was greeted with laughter by both delegation members and presspersons.
