Russia's foreign policy will remain unchanged following a cabinet reshuffle since it is determined by the president, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov has said in an interview with Sputnik.

"I think no one should have any doubt about the continuity of the current policy, the policy that has been pursued and that will be pursued in the future. In the Russian Federation, foreign policy is determined by the president, and there is nothing to add”, Ryabkov said.

He went on to say that Russia's foreign policy holds great weight in the international community, since Russia's offers, actions, and initiatives are "followed attentively”.

"Russian foreign policy contributes to further strengtheningthe country's position in the world, it serves the interests of our progressive development, it ensures citizens' interests and well-being, and this will continue, I have no doubt about that”, Ryabkov said.

Ryabkov's comments come as acting Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is expected to hold an annual press conference and a question and answer session with journalists, during which he will review the main achievements of the country's diplomacy in 2019.
