The Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov stated about foreign policy in his interview with Singapore's Channel News Asia. He raised the issue of the deployment of U.S. missile defense systems in Europe, describing the wickedness of the favorite United States, Barack Obama.
In the foreign policy arena Russia stands for true and mutually beneficial dialogue with all participants, however some of them prefer to cheat and hide part of the truth to further their own aims. In particular, Washington continues by hook or by crook to place on the terrain of Europe missile systems.
Even the White house, you had to be probed, speaking about the promotion of U.S. missiles to domestic borders. "President Obama previously said that if the Iranian nuclear issue will be resolved, the need for a missile defense system in Europe will disappear. He seems to have stated a falsehood," RIA Novosti quoted the Russian foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
"The precedent that the United States a couple of months ago came out of the Treaty on the limitation of anti-ballistic missile systems, has become a destabilizing factor scale values, since incites the build-up of arms and brings us back to the logic of mutual assured elimination", - said the leader of the Russian foreign Ministry. "The United States emerged from the Treaty carries within it the temptation of returning similar logic, it would be very undesirable," he added.
"Russia does not want an arms race and will not join it. We have enough technology to give not very expensive response to these attempts to create a missile defence system, especially after we've settled the question of the Iranian nuclear program," said Sergei Lavrov.
Steps the United States on the deployment of its missile defense considered one of the main challenges of Russian-American relations. The adherents of the USA has argued that missile defence is not directed against Russia, however to capture on paper this provision is for some reason not in a hurry.
Told Sergei Lavrov and the presence of Russia in the Asia-Pacific region. "Russia is the greatest country in Asia, if you take the territory from the Urals. We have legitimate interests throughout the borders of our great nation. And we are one of the major players in the Asia Pacific region. And, of course, we have our own interests," - said the Minister.
It is first directly on the internal interests related to the development of the Asian part of Russia. But to participate in the program and other powers in the region. "With the implementation of their own programmes for development of Eastern Siberia and the Far East we are trying to attract all the ATP structure for cooperation, including APEC, the East Asia summits," said Sergei Lavrov.
In this regard, various attempts of destabilization in the region met with opposition in Moscow. "We are extremely concerned about the growing military presence in the region, the continued strengthening of military units," - said Lavrov. "The amount committed by the Russian military exercises on its Eastern borders, even jointly with China or other States, only a small fraction of the number of exercises, which were held by our American neighbours, together with Japan, South Korea and other States in this area", - he noted.
With all this, the aim of the Russian-Chinese maneuvers is a support order in the region to combat piracy and smuggling. "I am talking about piracy, non-proliferation issues. These are the same tasks that we solved together with NATO, China, the European Union in Aden and Guinea bays within the anti-piracy coalition. This is not something unique," - said the head of the Foreign Ministry.
Some experts submitted that the joint maneuvers between Moscow and Beijing means that Russia supports the territorial complaints of China in the South China sea. Similar views are false, stated Sergey Lavrov. "This political analysts should know better domestic position, which is not classified secret and had already been performed in public," he said.
Lavrov reminded that Russia stands for the fact that "any disputes in the South China, East China, or all the other seas were solved within the framework of international law, even on the basis of the UN Convention on the law of the sea 1982 and the Declaration signed by China and ASEAN". With all this power cannot be involved in the incident other participants.
