VIENNA, November 7. /TASS/. Russia will not consider itself bound by obligations that may appear after the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit, due in the US city of Chicago, which Russia does not plan to attend, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Thursday.
“We will not consider ourselves bound by decisions worked out without our participation, and all the same, if someone wants the decisions to acquire a universal nature, they will have to go to the IAEA, follow the normal path,” Ryabkov told journalists.
He said Moscow’s decision to skip preparation for the 2016 summit is not a special signal Russia is sending. The diplomat added that the decision would have been made even if the Ukrainian crisis had not happened.
The positions of Russia and the United States on the Ukrainian developments differ radically. Washington accuses Moscow of participation in clashes in Ukraine’s embattled southeast and has subjected Russia to sanctions. Russia has repeatedly denied any involvement in the intra-Ukrainian crisis.
