Maria Zakharova “Afghanistan is one of the most serious topic, because it is connected with global threat”

The spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, in response to Asia News Agency and Arezo TV question on the prospects of the cooperation with the new US administration on the situation in Afghanistan and combating international terrorism in the region, said that “the fight against terrorism and the topic of Afghanistan are one of the most serious because they are connected with global challenges and threats, that is facing not only our countries but also the whole world. ”

According to Maria Zakharova, there is hope for the restoration of dialogue with Washington on major regional issues. The Press secretary reiterated that till the last day Russia is willing to work with the outgoing administration.

“We have set as a priority the development of bilateral relations, including cooperation in order to address global issues, above our own ideas on how to operate with our partners, we have however seen that they act dishonestly. Realizing that the interaction of Russia and the United States depends on the solution to global international issues, we have put it in the first place … We never gave up the contacts, negotiations, phone calls, despite the fact that, unfortunately, our partners acted otherwise, firstly, by requesting for meetings, talked about plans offered quite constructive things, and at the end of these contacts, which was literally on the same day, as we parted, new sanctions were introduced. Despite the fact that they acted in such a way, we still retained the spirit. ”

Maria Zakharova stressed that, in dealing with the people of the country, the responsibility at “the international arena for the two powers in affecting many global processes, is very high.”
