Far from everything in the US foreign policy suits Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov told a conference marking the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Russia and the USA on Tuesday.
Moscow is concerned over the US' commitment to military solutions of some problems, as well as its unilateral actions to the detriment of the international community, he stressed.
In bilateral relations, there are stereotypes of the cold war, he added. In his opinion, this is due to the Jackson-Vanik amendment, the sanctions imposed under "a far-fetched pretext" on Russian companies (the amendment was introduced by the USA against the USSR in 1974 and made bilateral economic relations dependent on the freedom of emigration from the Soviet Union).
There are differences in our relations, but they should not prevail, stressed Ivanov.
World's most powerful nuclear submarines, Arkhangelsk and Severstal, are to be dismantled after 2020 - their further exploitation is unprofitable
The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
