MOSCOW, September 28 /ITAR-TASS/. Remarks by U.S. President Barack Obama who put Russia in one row with such threats as the Ebola virus and the Islamic State are not reflecting the world community’s opinion, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with Bloomberg Television.
"If you listen to the language which was used by President Obama and some other Western leaders, yes, I would say that this is a strange language. Russia was put as a threat number two after Ebola virus but before terrorist threat of ISIL in the Middle East. And I do not think this reflects the attitude towards Russia in the international community,” the Russian foreign minister said.
“Our American colleagues, they always have the habit of speaking for everyone and drawing conclusions which hardly many people share,” Lavrov went on to say.
“It is really unfortunate that instead of concentrating on the substance of the problems and on building collective efforts based on international law, on the Security Council cooperation, serious and very serious issues become subject to accusations, facts are not produced, and be it Ukrainian crisis or the current situation in Syria, in Iraq and in Libya,” Lavrov added.
