MOSCOW, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has made a major input into settlement of vital lasting international problems, including those related to Syria, or the Iranian nuclear programme, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin told a big news conference on Thursday.
However, he said, no results could be possible “without the joint efforts with the Americans, Europeans, with the Chinese friends,” he said. “We may be proud of what and how we have been doing in the international arena. We may be proud of the principal positions… based on the major principles of the international law. But I would like to stress once again: without joint work with our counterparts it would have not been possible to achieve those results.”
“We are grateful to the counterparts from the US, the European Commission for the joint work,” Putin said.
