MOSCOW (Agencies): M-oscow will “toughly and d-ecisively” respond to the u-nfriendly actions of Washi-ngton , said Russian Fore-ign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
According to the Russian minister, Washi-ngton must understand that attempts to conduct a dialogue with Moscow from a position of strength are doomed to failure.
“We will respond harshly and decisively to unfriendly actions,” RIA Novosti quotes the head of the department with reference to his interview with the Indonesian newspaper Rakyat Merdeka.
Lavrov drew attention to the fact that at the summit in Geneva , Russian President Putin made it clear that achieving results in all areas is possible only through the search for a mutually acceptable balance of interests and strictly on a parity basis.
At the same time, according to the minister, despite the fact that during the negotiations there were no objections to this, immediately after them, Washington “with a vengeance took up the previous notations” and also began to put forward new demands on Russia.
On June 16, at the Villa La Grange in Geneva, a meeting was held between the presidents of Russia and the United States.
It lasted 4.5 hours, taking into account the break. After the talks, each leader stated that the talks were constructive and proceeded on a positive note.
The summit resulted in the adoption of a joint statement, which says that the Russian Federation and the United States confirm their adherence to the thesis that there can be no winners in a nuclear war and it should never be unleashed.
Russia increasingly needs to thwart meddling in infrastructure controls: The need to secure critically important infrastructure from the potential control of terrorists increases every year, Russian Security Council Deputy Secretary Yuri Kokov said Tuesday.
“Every year, the problem of terrorists’ unsanctioned interference in the operation of the automated control systems of potentially dangerous and critically important objects, including transportation and fuel and energy systems in order to create an emergency becomes more and more pressing,” he told journalists. According to Kokov, the anti-terrorist protection of objects such as these has to be improved.
