Foreign policy adviser to presidential candidate, USA Donald trump, retired General Michael Flynn before the Republican national Convention in Cleveland, spoke about the foreign policy positions of the trump.
In an interview with Spiegel Online Flynn, on the question of the relation of the trump Putin, said that “he respects people who think only about their country.”
“Putin is the one who only thinks about Russia, the Russian Federation, and understands the history of his country. You can’t say, “I don’t like this man.” You have to respect it. He is a world leader,” — said the adviser to the Republican candidate.
Michael Flynn said that Russia and USA are two major world powers.
“Between the United States and Russia have a strategic relationship. We need to ensure that the two leading States in the world, two nuclear powers occupying permanent seats in the UN Security Council, did not go to war with each other, not made a stupid mistake,” he was quoted saying TASS.
When building bilateral relations powers must “be guided by the principle of common sense” and translate them into the plane of direct contacts between heads of countries and militaries, he added. “It is necessary that the President spoke directly with the President, the Chairman of the joint chiefs of staff — the chief of the General staff of the Armed forces, Minister of defense — Minister of defense. It is a model of personal contacts that go beyond meetings and conferences on bilateral and multilateral levels,” added the retired General.Related posts:
