Moscow does not seek a fight with Washington; it remains open for constructive dialogue. The United States, however, have been taking deliberate actions to undermine the bilateral relations. Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister said that in his interview with Interfax news agency.
‘We’ve been always friendly with the Americans; we’re open for constructive cooperation as long as it meets Russia’s interests, and we want the political atmosphere to get back on track. But, as you know, tango takes two, and it seems our partners have been now performing individual break dance,’ the Russian official said.
According to him, it was Barak Obama’s administration that began the entire story with sanctions and diplomatic hostilities. ‘Such actions are supposed to destroy the bilateral relations and do not let president Donald Trump come up with constructive offers,’ Lavrov concluded.
