Russia's President Vladimir Putin

President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin stated that China and Germany were heading for superpower status, Reuters reports.

The president suggested that the role of the United States had faded, along with other countries such as Britain and France. Beijing and Berlin, in turn, were striving for superpower status.

Putin also claimed Russia's willingness to discuss global problems with other nations in case Washington refuses to do so.

As we reported earlier, the Russian Federation expects to resolve all the issues with the United States on extending the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START).

The New START, signed back in 2010, limits the numbers of strategic nuclear warheads, missiles, and bombers that both countries can deploy.

According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, the work on extending the treaty, which expires next February, is continuing at the level of experts.

We hope that all differences about the issue will be overcome through dialogue,” the statement said.
