Deputy foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov called “strange” the statement of administration of the President of the United States Donald trump about “Russia’s isolation” in the United Nations.
“A strange statement. On the contrary, we seek cooperation with all countries, including, primarily, with the United States in the UN,” — said the Russian diplomat.
According to him, the speech should go not about getting someone to isolate, and to seek common ground and thereby reach a joint solution of global problems and international challenges.
“This should underpin the work of the UN, not to put someone into isolation,” — said Deputy foreign Minister.
Earlier, the White house called one of the merits of trump for the first 100 days of presidency, “the isolation of Russia in the UN” due to the interaction with China.
