MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. Moscow is ready to resume dialogue and cooperation with the United States if such an initiative comes from Washington, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"Naturally, we will be ready to hail an initiative to get back to the logic of dialogue and cooperation [between Russia and the United States]. But since we have never initiated anything in contradiction to it, we are ready to hail our partners’ actions," he underscored.
When asked about possible talks between the Russian and US presidents, Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama, Peskov recalled the history of the current chill in Russia-US relations. "The thing is that Russia is not the one who initiated the current rollback of bilateral dialogue in a range of areas," he said. "Russia is not and has never been an initiator of the sanction oratory, neither in word nor in deed. Russia can only be sorry all this has been initiated by Washington."
