Kremlin expects no progress in talks with Britain's Cameron

British Prime Minister David Cameron is expected to arrive in Moscow for an official visit. This will be the first visit of the head of the British government to the Russia in six years. Cameron said that his meeting with Russia's Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow would give a "huge chance" to improve the bilateral ties between the two countries.

Kremlin officials said, though, that one should not be expecting any breakthrough in the relations.

"Although our differences in recent years are well known, we face many similar challenges and both the President (Medvedev) and I believe that we can make more progress by working together on matters of real importance for the prosperity and security of people in both countries," Cameron said before the trip, The Telegraph said.

The British prime minister also said he was expecting fruitful discussions with Medvedev about commerce, foreign politics and the supremacy of law. The economic ties between Russia and Britain have been strengthening, he added. Britain's export to Russia has grown by 60 percent this year, Cameron said.

In the meantime, the Kremlin is prepared for pragmatic talks with Cameron. Officials with the Russian administration said that they would not be speaking about any progress in the relations with Britain beforehand, Interfax reports.

"I think that the visited will take place in a pragmatic and quiet atmosphere. Of course, no one expects any breakthroughs. One doesn't need them, actually. Why do we need battles and victories? We need quiet work. They (Britain) are ready for this work now," Sergei Prikhodko, an official spokesman for the presidential administration said.

According to Prikhodko, such a long pause in the visits of British officials to Moscow is connected with the "stalemate situation created by certain political forces in Great Britain."

"This is just not normal when only one publicly painful issue becomes a serous obstacle for everything else. This is not right, and the sitting British administration, as well as the British prime minister, are aware of that," Prikhodko said.

 

 

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
