Sergey Zheleznyak: “Building relations between Russia and the United States should be built on the principle of a two-way street”

“The improvement of relations between Russia and the United States should be built on the principle of a two-way street, where everyone follows generally accepted laws. The statements from the head of the White House that it is better to have good relations with our country are clearly not enough. Especially against the backdrop of another wave of hysteria of the US congressmen demanding to introduce new sanctions against Russia and our citizens for not committed actions. ” This was stated by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergei Zheleznyak, commenting on the statement of US President Donald Trump about “collusion with Russia.”

He stressed: “The pre-election fever of the United States always has an extremely negative effect on the American foreign policy, making the policy of the White House impulsive and inconsistent. The search for weak points in the enemy often pushes US politicians, eager for a seat in the Oval Office, to take strange steps and contradictory statements. Now, once again, the main topic of American internal political discussions has become relations with Russia and the pseudo influence of our country on the electoral processes in the United States. At the same time, our country has never interfered and does not intend to interfere in other people’s political affairs. For us, the party affiliation and the name of the American president are not so important as the foreign policy line that he voices and pursues. If the US leadership acts in the interests of its citizens and conducts a mutually respectful dialogue with other countries in the interests of international security, there will be much less tension and crises in the world. “
