FORTALEZA, July 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow is taking threats of new sanctions philosophically and is only sorry about U.S. President Barack Obama’s position on that matter, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists on Tuesday.
“It is a pity that the president of the great power approaches international affairs from such positions,” Lavrov noted, commenting on President Obama’s statement on possible new unilateral sanctions against Russia if this idea wins no support in the European Union.
“Maybe, everything should be taken philosophically but we offer reason and pragmatism as an alternative to unilateral actions,” Lavrov stressed.
