Deputy head of the Russian government Arkady Dvorkovich on the sidelines of the world economic forum in Davos shaturskom Wednesday, January 24, explained why it was unable to meet with the President of the United States Donald trump, who attended the event. According to the Russian Deputy Prime Minister, his status does not allow to request a meeting with the American leader, according to RNS.
“I’m not the President of Russia. I’m not in the position to request a meeting with Mr trump, but I’m ready for contacts with members of the American delegation,” — said Dvorkovich.
In addition, as noted by Deputy Prime Minister, representatives of the U.S. delegation are “hiding” from communication with representatives of Russia at the international forum. He noted that Russia and personally, he is ready to debate with members of the American delegation, but they avoided that possibility.
“Sanctions is not the most important thing in the world. This is a minor problem, we don’t have to spend a lot of time discussing sanctions, we just have to work more and more efficiently and work better, not thinking about sanctions. Russia is not hiding from the dialogue, and that Russia is not closed. The Americans are hiding from us in Davos. It’s a small village, but they don’t want to talk. They are hiding from a real debate on this situation”, — concluded the Prime Minister.
