Dialogue U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov have the opportunity to make American politics more than all the previous steps U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama, writes political survey portal, the Fiscal Times column on the Internet office of publications.
special "demarche" of the Obama administration, he stresses, is associated with three key issues - Iran's nuclear program, the situation in the Syrian Arab Republic and the problem where the expression "second cold war" firmly entrenched in spoken language - the crisis in Ukraine. Most analysts agree that the Visit of the head of American diplomacy John Kerry in Sochi, the U.S. has admitted that none of these issues can be resolved without the participation of the Russian capital.
anyway, according to Patrick Smith, the return to full-scale dialogue with Russia - a decision delayed for at least one year.
"there is a reason why Obama and Kerry began to move: they have only a year and a half (until the end of the presidential term of Barack Hussein Obama - approx. Ed.), to leave at least some foreign policy legacy, but as long as their list of nothing but failures, " writes Smith.
in regard to Syria, the White house ought to be wise in September 2013, when the Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov literally "handed Obama a life vest" and urged Damascus to give up stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction under international supervision.
"Similar is the case with Iran's nuclear program, which has become the main subject of discussion in Sochi. Exactly Lavrov became The one who had forced Tehran to think of it, if you do not agree to the transfer of Iranian enriched uranium and its processing for application in good order ", - the analyst believes.
in the Ukrainian question, in the opinion of the journalist, indicative of the rotation of American diplomacy towards compliance with the Minsk agreements, which Washington before been recognized as an effective way of settlement. The visit of U.S. assistant Secretary of state Victoria Nuland in the Russian Federation confirms that Washington has taken toward the implementation of the " Minsk-2 ". Anyway, Smith emphasizes, Kiev still does a little bit for the project to end strife in Ukraine.
in addition, the tough stance of the United States regarding Russia is one of the sources of the growing tensions between the US and the EU. Visit in Sochi, adds Patrick Smith, John Kerry hinted European partners that Perhaps the time has come to "take back" and discuss the possibility of the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions. For this decision are already six European countries, and similar "demarche" of American diplomacy may also open for Europe to track a lost unity.
"Reversal of the White house to Russia refers to the words of Winston Churchill: you can always count on the Americans to do the right thing, but only after they try something else," says a columnist for The Fiscal Times.
