International isolation of Crimea does not exist, which proves the Yalta international forum. This statement was made official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, RIA Novosti reported.
“Isolation of the Crimea — is a myth,” — said the diplomat. Zakharov added that the annual Yalta forum shows the development of foreign economic ties of the Peninsula.
The foreign Ministry also noted the wide membership of the forum, which this year has arrived more than 4,5 thousand people from 100 countries. “There is luporum, and it is true,” — said Zakharov.
Yalta international economic forum — an annual international business event in the economic sphere, held in the Crimea. This year it takes place from 18 to 20 April.
The referendum on joining of Crimea to Russia took place in 2014. Then the majority of the residents decided in favor of reunification with Russia. The corresponding agreement was signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Ukraine, EU, USA and other countries do not recognize the voting results. Moscow insists that the procedure took place in accordance with international law.
