Russian diplomat says US fails to settle international conflicts

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman says the United States has failed to cope with the role of the superman in settling international conflicts

SVETLOGORSK /Kaliningrad Region/, August 15. /TASS/. The United States, which all the way emphasizes its exclusiveness, has failed to cope with the role of the superman in settling international conflicts, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said while meeting participants in the international youth educational forum Baltartek.

She said many countries might have supported the concept of the United States’ exclusiveness, if only Washington was able "to really bring more stability into this world, enhance security, make peace between countries, eliminate conflicts and prevent more ones."

"Who would’ve been against? It’s tremendous political, financial and moral responsibility," Zakharova said. "To be the superman who flies to the rescue, provides help and flies away."

"For some reason the United States has failed to cope with this role," she said.

"On the contrary, there have been more conflicts and they have grown bigger, although many pinned great hopes on the United States," she said.

The international youth education forum Baltartek, being held in Svetlogorsk on August 9 - 16, has brought together more than 300 young compatriots from 70 countries around the world. The forum’s mission is to form Russia’s positive image and promote compatriots’ unity. It was arranged on instructions from the Russian president. The forum’s partners are the Russian Foreign Ministry, the agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States Rossotrudnichestvo, the authorities of the Kaliningrad Region, the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University and the Future Team foundation.
