“The positive assessment by Russian President Vladimir Putin of the meeting with American leader Joseph Biden suggests that our countries have prospects for restoring cooperation in those areas where cooperation between Russia and the United States is necessary in the interests of peace and sustainable development.” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergei Zheleznyak.
The politician believes: “A positive signal was made by Vladimir Putin’s statement about the start of a diplomatic dialogue on a number of topics, including strategic stability, countering cyber threats, cooperation in the Arctic and joint work on climate issues. An important result of the agreements reached during the meeting of the two leaders should be a meaningful development of dialogue and consultations on all topics at the expert level. ”
“The traditional openness of the Russian President in dealing with the media, who asked very acute and sometimes provocative questions at the press conference, arouses deep respect. The clarity in the answers of the head of our state, the utmost clarity in the position of the leader of Russia in upholding the national interests of the country testifies to the confidence that Russia does not intend to betray its strategic interests, but is always open to meaningful discussion of any problems and contradictions.
The meeting at the highest level can become an impetus to reduce tensions between our countries and progressively restore confidence, but this is a two-way road, ”the parliamentarian said.
