MOSCOW, April 22. /TASS/. It will be most important for a future US administration to build a pragmatic relationship with the rest of the world, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in a live interview telecast by three radio stations.
"If Hillary Clinton is elected the United States’ new president, we will perceive it as a leader," Lavrov said. He remarked that her recent biased statements addressed to the Russian leadership were "not the sole statement that does no credit to Western leaders."
"One can quote a lot of other examples," Lavrov said.
"There is a theory it is far easier to come to terms with the Republicans, because they are harsher and in the final count it is easier for them to make decisions," Lavrov said. "I do not share such theories. There are good examples of cooperating with both Democrat and Republican presidents. It is most important for these people to build relations with the outside world in a pragmatic way and avoid getting back to the long gone ways and dictating decisions on one and all. Only the course of life will show who is more democratic.".
