WASHINGTON, June 13 (Itar-Tass) - In a statement issued on Wednesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry offered his congratulations to the people of Russia on the occasion of National Day.
Despite "different perspectives which we express openly and honestly, Russia and the United States have much to gain by working together on the central challenges of this century," Mr. Kerry pointed out.
"The opportunities before us far outweigh our differences, as our record of cooperation on common interests, from trade and investment to counterterrorism and nonproliferation, clearly demonstrates," Mr. Kerry remarked.
The Secretary of State expressed hope that Americans and Russians by working together can help to ensure that "the 21st century will be defined by shared peace, stability and prosperity".
