Maria Zakharova to Vestnik Kavkaza: attempts to politically isolate Russia were unsuccessful
Plans of Western "colleagues" to politically isolate Russia have failed, official spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said, answering question of Vestnik Kavkaza's correspondent.
Earlier it was reported that the NATO summit began with two noteworthy statements - Jens Stoltenberg said that Crimean issue is not an excuse for isolating Russia from the West, especially since Russia doesn't pose a threat to the Alliance; and leader of the French political party "National Front" Marin Le Pen proposed to NATO to cooperate with Russia in the joint fight against terrorism.
Zakharova stressed that after it became obvious that it's impossible to politically isolate the Russian Federation through appeals to other countries, a number of countries tried to to create artificial political isolation.
However, this political isolation failed, which is evidenced by "meetings with participation of Russian president, foreign minister and other ministers, international events that are taking place in the Russian Federation," she said.
