SOCHI, October 20 /TASS/. Russia should start thinking of how to build relations with a new US president and administration, Nikolay Zlobin, the president and founder of the Center on Global Interests (CGI), told TASS on the sidelines of the 2015 Valdai International Discussion Club that opened in Sochi on Tuesday.
"We should start working with the US already now because it’s going to be much harder to do that until the new US administration has not fixed its new agenda," Zlobin stressed.
"We should start re-convincing society already now. After all, the United States is an elected democracy no matter how one can mock at it," Zlobin stressed. "We need to work with those whom the Americans want to elect. Consequently, we should work with voters to form their public opinion," Zlobin stressed.
He added it was necessary to reduce the influence of US bureaucrats, who are involved in writing these daily scenarios, on political issues of Russian-US relations.
The Russian-US relations are currently in a clinch, Zlobin went on to say. "Washington is not showing any great desire to hear the Russian stance. The Washington administration, though it may be argued whether it’s fair or not, is confident that the Russian stance (on various) issues depends exclusively on the current internal political situation and does not reflect the fundamental national interests," Zlobin concluded.
