MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — The United States should drop "a game of lists" with Russia, but rather put questions directly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday. Lavrov commented in the Twitter of John Boehner, Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, who suggested putting Russia on a list of countries which arouse concern in the United States.
"We have quite a few concerns about the activities undertaken in the United States," Lavrov said. “ But, we express our concerns not through a game of lists, which recently has been increasingly liked in Washington, but by means of putting direct questions as we used to do, for example, in connection with the developments in Libya and around it and measures taken by the North Atlantic Alliance.”
"Our concern, above all, pertains to the importance of preventing new and new violations of the international law and new and new violations of the UN Charter," Lavrov said.
