MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. The Western nations are not ready to a dialogue with Russia and are looking for new ways to deter it, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with aif.ru posted on the Foreign Ministry’s website on Tuesday.
Russia remains open for cooperation on an equal basis and with Russian interests addressed "for the purpose of normalizing the situation in Europe and the Euro-Atlantic region and long-term lowering of nuclear risks," the Minister noted.
"However, [the West] is not ready to this and to the constructive dialogue, being busy with the search for new methods of deterring Russia twenty four hours a day," Lavrov said.
