US creates alliances in preparation for future conflicts, Russian Foreign Ministry says

Russia intends to counteract this in every possible way, said Ambassador-at-Large of the Russian Foreign Ministry Grigory Mashkov

UNITED NATIONS, June 2. /TASS/. The United States creates new regional alliances getting ready for future conflicts and Russia will counteract this in every way, Ambassador-at-Large of the Russian Foreign Ministry Grigory Mashkov told journalists on Wednesday. The diplomat is participating in the UN committee on non-proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.

"Currently, at various regional levels, the US is weaving alliances which have the same focus as everything that’s going on in the world," the envoy noted. "The creation of a system of global domination, AUKUS, the American-Japanese, the American-South Korean alliances - all these are regional schemes to resolve their global goals. Look at all the countries that [the US] has allied relations with, they lost their voice. <...> Europeans have done everything to destroy their own regional security," he explained.

"What [the US] is doing now is, essentially, the preparation for the future conflict situations," the diplomat said. "This is the Middle East, the creation of air defense systems, the Asian track, the shaping of alliances against China," he added.

He emphasized that Russia "will counteract this in every way." "We won’t help Americans resolve the issues of establishing world domination. We are protecting our national interests, will defend [them] by diplomatic means," the ambassador-at-large stated.
