MOSCOW, October 20./TASS/. Russia is ready to mend ties with Poland, but Warsaw should stop slinging mud at Russia, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"We are making no statements towards Poland that would be insulting, humiliating and not true," the diplomat said. "Have you heard any anti-Polish statements in the past two or three weeks that would affect our Polish colleagues?" she asked journalists.
Zakharova said Moscow was mentioning Warsaw only when some concrete issues emerged, for example problems with the crossing of the border between the two countries. "We also speak about Poland in case of contacts between the foreign ministries," she went on.
"All that we hear from Poland every week is just another mud-slinging at us," she said. "We are ready to improve ties with Poland but it was not us to worsen them," Zakharova said.
