Lavrov on US elections: we will judge by deeds
Russia will judge the new US administration by its deeds and will respond in kind, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, commenting on Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential elections.
"We are ready to work with any president. I can’t say that all the previous US leaders were always predictable. This is life, this is politics. I have heard many words but we will judge by deeds," Lavrov stressed.
"We don’t have any preferences. As the president said, we will work with any US leader that the American people elect," the Russian top diplomat said.
According to him, Russia’s position on this matter "remains, it hasn’t changed." "We have been waiting for the American people to decide, now we have their decision," TASS cited Lavrov as saying.
