Kremlin assesses perspectives of Russia-U.S. relations
Moscow is in favor of a dialogue with Washington to solve the existing problems but so far it sees no bright prospects for normalizing bilateral relations, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
According to him, it is up to the Americans themselves to decide whether the domestic political situation in the US improved or deteriorated after the elections, and Kremlin has "no desire whatsoever to intervene there."
"One can assume with a high degree of confidence that, of course, no bright prospects for normalizing Russian-American relations are in the offing," he said when asked about relations between the two countries’ leaders after the November 6 midterm elections in the US.
"That does not mean, however, that we seek no dialogue, that we want no dialogue, because we have numerous problems that require Russian-American intercommunication. These are the problems of strategic stability and arms control," TASS cited him as saying. "These problems will not be solved by themselves without maintaining a dialogue," the Kremlin spokesman concluded.
