MOSCOW, Russia – Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Aleksandr Grushko said at a meeting entitled The Future of Diplomacy and Political Communications on the platform of the international discussion club Valdai on Tuesday that Washington not explaining its intentions to Russia hinders bilateral relations.
“In our relations with the United States there is a great problem: we do not understand what our partners’ intensions are and what they would like to achieve,” he said.
“Successful talks are possible only when we have a clear understanding of our partners’ intentions. Then we can start a discussion on how to reconcile these goals and intentions,” he continued.
“We’ve been described as adversaries. The US openly says that it will seek guaranteed supremacy in military and economic terms,” Grushko said. “The situation is alarming and it cannot be otherwise.”
