Moscow. June 8. INTERFAX-Relations between Russia and the United States should be taken out of the lowest point in which they are since the Cold War, this is in the interests of not only the two countries, but also the whole world, said Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov.
Speaking at the Primakov Readings forum, Ushakov noted that on the eve of the meeting of the presidents of Russia and the United States, scheduled for June 16 in Geneva, it is logical to pay attention to Russian-American relations.
"The interaction between the two countries, as everyone knows, is probably at its lowest point since the Cold War. It is clear that something needs to be done about this, because real risks are created not only for these two large countries, but also for the whole world," Ushakov said.
Speaking about the situation in the world, the presidential aide noted that the situation continues to get more complicated. "The global security system is becoming less predictable, degraded, and this was mentioned by the president (Vladimir Putin-IF), as a whole, the conflict potential is growing," Ushakov said, noting that new local hotbeds of tension are emerging against the background of unresolved many long-standing regional crises.
