The Foreign Affairs Minister has welcomed news controversial Russian military exercises have been moved further from Ireland.

Those drills were due to take place inside Ireland's exclusive economic zone, but in international waters next week.

The move caused significant unrest as tensions between Ukraine and Russia continue to simmer.
