Open to dialogue with US if interests respected: Russia

- Posted on 12 February 2020

MOSCOW, FEB 12 : Russia is open to dialogue with the US if its interests are taken into account and Washington stops interfering in its internal affairs, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Tuesday.

“Refusal of cooperation and of partnership in some areas has become the norm in Washington,” Ryabkov was quoted by RIA Novosti news agency as saying, Xinhua reported.

“For our part, we invariably confirm openness to dialogue, resolving any issues in the search for mutually acceptable solutions, but, of course, only on the basis of mutual respect, consideration of interests and equality,” said Ryabkov.

Commenting on Washington’s intention to allocate over $700 million in 2021 to counteract Russia, Ryabkov said the move will fail.

It is credibility and independence that are dear to us and epitomise our core values. We will question what is wrong and espouse what we feel is the right cause, at the same time fully conscious that both are relative terms but we will go by the interpretations are rooted in the collective consciousness of the people. At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
