Russian top diplomat: further untoward steps can be expected from U.S.

The United States’ recent actions indicate that further untoward steps in respect of Russia could be expected from Washington, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

"The American Establishment, which is cherishing the idea of its exclusiveness, keeps on appointing opponents and rivals, first of all from among countries pursuing an independent foreign policy," the diplomat stressed.

The minister noted that it is now clear for all that further untoward measures could be expected from Washington, including in respect of Russia as any steps taken by U.S. President Donald Trump towards establishing sustainable, normal channels for contacts with Moscow on the most acute problems of today are blocked by those who seek to continue and augment the destructive approach to relations with our country that was initiated by the previous White House administration.

"It looks like over the past 25 years the Americans, and some of our other Western colleagues, have capitally forgotten the basics of diplomacy and have lost the standards of dialogue and consensus. As a result, we see dangerous militarization of foreign policy thinking," TASS cited Lavrov as saying.
