MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. A lack of trust is a complex that could be overcome through dialogue, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
While commenting on a statement made by US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Hailey in which she said that the US should never trust Russia, Zakharova pointed out that "if you feel that you don’t trust someone, they you should test them in order to build trust."
"You can distrust someone forever and live on phobias, but it only indicates complexes. On the other hand, you can choose a path of cooperation and mutual tests, Russia has never refused to do that. What is the problem? Cooperate, maintain contacts, talk and overcome your complex," Zakharova said.
On Wednesday, Haley said in an interview with NBC News: "Take it seriously. We cannot trust Russia. We should never trust Russia."
NBC did not elaborate in what connection the US ambassador to the UN made this statement which is not in line with US President Donald Trump’s line for building cooperation with Moscow. However, NBC said that Haley gave the interview after the US authorities had charged several Russian nationals with carrying out a hacking attack on Yahoo accounts in 2014.
