Theresa May, Britain’s Prime Minister warns in her speech in the US to “beware” of Vladimir Putin. She called to engage with the Kremlin “from a position of strength” and based on the principle “trust but verify”.
This was reported by AFP.
“When it comes to Russia, as so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who, during negotiations with his opposite number Mikhail Gorbachev, used to abide by the adage ‘trust but verify,” she said.
“With President Putin, my advice is to ‘engage but beware’,” she added.
“There is nothing inevitable about conflict between Russia and the West. And nothing unavoidable about retreating to the days of the Cold War. But we should engage with Russia from a position of strength,” Ms May noted.
