WASHINGTON, March 1. /TASS/. The United States is ready to search for new partners and establish new partnership relations, according to excerpts from Trump's joint address to the US Congress.
"America is willing to find new friends, and to forge new partnerships, where shared interests align," the document reads.
We want harmony and stability, not war and conflict. We want peace, wherever peace can be found. #JointAddress #AmericanSpirit— President Trump (@POTUS) 1 March 2017
Trump added that his country was ready to cooperate with allies, including in the Islamic world, to defeat the Islamic State terrorist group.
"As promised, I directed the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS - a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs."
