The cooperation of the Russian capital and the capital of the United States in the Syrian crisis vast potential - it may spread to other issues, for example to Ukraine, but prohibitions on the way of rapprochement between Russia and the U.S. are Not less, Professor at Princeton University, American political scientist.
according to his vision, one of the main issues that complicate the search for understanding between Moscow and Washington, the situation in Ukraine. The crisis in the South-East of the country could erupt at any moment with this power, that any fragile agreement, If any, was reached between the leaders of the 2 countries at a meeting in new York, will be destroyed.
"I think that Kyiv is strongly concerned that the Russian Federation and the USA are cooperating in the middle East and that in the end Washington will forget about Ukraine and about their obligations to the Kiev elite. I wonder If Kiev will organize some provocation, to re-inflame the Ukrainian Crisis, the climax of which is currently extremely low. Such things often happen during the cold war, " says American political scientist. If such provocation happens, opponents of cooperation with Moscow Inside the White house will be twice more.
Inside the American establishment, and without this, many opponents to the rapprochement of the Russian capital and the capital of the United States, adds the expert. Policy wing of Senator McCain or candidate for presidency Hillary Clinton will accuse Barack Obama that he indulges Vladimir Putin and inferior to him in the Syrian Arab Republic.
"Obama will have to explain to opponents of his foreign Policy, but he failed to do it, it often comes to a standstill, then he has to surrender, to sacrifice their agenda in exchange for the decision of internal problems. It's Possible that he lacks understanding of foreign policy processes or it is too soft, " says Stephen Cohen.
