MOSCOW, November 10. /TASS/. The United States has found itself a hostage to its own model of ‘isolation’ of Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in an interview with the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper published on Tuesday.
"We want nothing from the Americans. To a larger extent, it is they who want something from us, judging by the number of invitations to ministerial-level meetings we are now receiving," she said.
"Moreover, the very word ‘Russia’ is heard from American officials literally every day," Zakharova noted. "They have found themselves hostages to their own invented model: on the one hand, isolation of Russia they sought to realize and obviously failed to do; on the other hand, they have unilaterally frozen cooperation in all spheres having left only one channel open - that with the foreign ministry."
"And now there are a lot of issues that require solution but no channels to solve them," she went on to say. "They have shut them close with their own hands! And now they are calling to the foreign ministry on all problems. I think they are coming to understand that their strategy may lead to nowhere. It is impossible to speak about isolation of a country you recognize as a biggest player on a range of international issues."
"Regrettably, some internal ambitions don’t let them have a sober look at the situation," she underscored.
