The Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the reasons why in his opinion, stand bilateral relations between Russia and USA. The announcement came at a press-conference on results of participation in the week’s high-level session of the UN General Assembly, reports TASS.
“Too bad that the great potential of our bilateral relationship idle idle due to Russophobic hysteria, the fact that international problems are suffering due to the fact that Russia and the United States can not be coordinated”, – said Lavrov.
He stressed that these relationships suffer, not because of conflicts, but because of the legacy of the Obama administration.
“The previous administration did petty, vindictive, laying a time bomb for Russian-American relations. I didn’t expect this from a Nobel peace prize” – Lavrov said, referring to former US President Barack Obama.
