Putin Calls on West to Cooperate with Russia

Moscow, July 01 (QNA) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a speech today about foreign policy that Russia intends henceforth to hold relations on an equal footing with the West “after it defended its geopolitical interests in the Ukrainian crisis.”
He told members of the diplomatic corps “what happened in Ukraine is the highest degree of negative sentiment in global affairs.”
I hope that “pragmatism would prevail in spite of everything, and the Western sides would give up their ambitions and begin building relationships on an equal footing with mutual respect.” (QNA)
