BRISBANE, November 15. /TASS/. Responsibility for stagnation in relations between Moscow and Washington lies on the United States and there are no prospects for improvement yet, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told reporters.
“In Beijing the Russian president had talks with the U.S. counterpart on several international issues, but this would be untrue to say that after this we have new prospects, particularly in improving relations with the U.S.,” he said. “There is no such impetus,” the deputy foreign minister added, noting that a U-turn “is not in sight.”
“Responsibility for stagnation in our relations fully lies on the U.S.,” Ryabkov said.
