MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. Russia is determined to have constructive relations with the United States and waits for dialogue, but is not too much optimistic, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
"Russia is poised for constructive relations and expects dialogue but no one in Moscow is too much optimistic," Peskov told reporters. "But there is political will for the development of the dialogue," he added.
US President-elect Donald Trump said earlier in the interview with MSNBC that he was not afraid of a prospect of an arms race and was sure that the US could outmatch any country. ""Let it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all," he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said during his annual news conference on Friday that Moscow sees nothing new in Trump’s statements and that he said during the election campaign that the US must "strengthen and expand its nuclear capability." Putin also said that Russia is not going to allow itself to get drawn into an arms race.
