MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. Alliance between Moscow and Beijing stemming from the United States attempts to isolate Russia is the biggest failure of Barack Obama as the United States President, a Russian lawmaker said on Tuesday.

"To my mind, it is Obama’s biggest failure over his entire presidency - the alliance between Moscow and Beijing, which has not been that apparent until now," Alexei Pushkov, the chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, told the Vesti FM radio station. "Yes, we did have strategic partnership but there has been no talk about allied relations, advanced strategic partnership - the Chinese wanted to have their hand free. But now the alliance has practically been forged ‘thanks’ to the Obama administration."

Pushkov said Beijing was fully aware that in case the anti-Russian campaign was successful, the next blow will be delivered on China. That is why, in his words, China was moving towards Russia and was against attempts at isolating it. "They (the Chinese) have suddenly realized that is this policy - isolation of Russia - is successful, China might be the next, because the Americans have never even hidden that their chief rival in the 21st century is not Russia, it is China," he underscored.
