Moscow intends to respond harshly to possible unfriendly actions on the part of Washington.
This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in an interview with the Indonesian newspaper Rakyat Merdeka.
We are talking about the fact that at a briefing on June 16 in Geneva after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, his American counterpart Joe Biden said that the real result of their meeting would be shown in the next six months, without specifying what would become a marker.
Lavrov noted that everything was correct and businesslike at the talks, but then allegedly American officials, including the participants of the Geneva meeting, вЂњtook up the previous вЂњnotationsвЂќ with a vengeance.
вЂњAll theseвЂќ warnings " were accompanied by threats: if Russia does not accept the вЂњrules of the gameвЂќ set out to it in Geneva вЂњwithin a few monthsвЂќ, it will be subject to new pressure. Attempts to conduct a dialogue with us from a position of strength are initially doomed to failure,вЂќ the Russian Foreign Minister said.
Lavrov still believes that the parties have demonstrated вЂњa desire to understand each other.вЂќ
