YEREVAN, March 31. /TASS/. Forming a pan-European space along the West-East line is hampered by Washington’s pressure, Russian State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin said on Tuesday.
"US and Brussels themselves drive Russia and its allies to build a new cooperation axis along the North-South line," Naryshkin said.
"We see that Washington’s pressure seriously hampers the formation of pan-European space along the West-East line from Lisbon to Vladivostok," the speaker said.
Talking about the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), Naryshkin said the organization is working in uneasy conditions. "These are global crisis events, also illegal pressure. Talking clearly and sincerely, this is crude blackmail, economic and political, from Brussels and Washington, in the form of different sanctions and in general the escalation of international tensions," he stressed,
It becomes even more relevant to form a new, safe, sustainable and multi-polar world order where "centers of power are not in confrontation, but in cooperation with each other, where they solve their domestic problems not to the detriment of others, but instead relying on mutually beneficial, constructive cooperation with all regions in the world," Naryshkin said.
It is important to develop cooperation with other centers of power of the Eurasian continent - with EU and countries of Southeast and South Asia, the speaker said. The current situation only speeds up the development of cooperation along the North-South line - from Murmansk to Delhi, Shanghai and Hanoi, Naryshkin noted.
The speaker also drew attention to the fact that "the monopoly of foreign currency" has negative impact on international cooperation.
