RT / Russia’s ambassador to the US has stated the importance of overcoming the negative tendencies in mutual relations and called proper cooperation between the two nations crucial to overcoming global threats, such as terrorism. ” It is important to guide our American partners to understanding of the objective necessity of repairing the bilateral dialogue. Russian-American cooperation remains a decisive factor that influences all key global processes. Only together can we defeat the plague that has stricken the humanity – terrorism. After we unite we can reinforce the foundations of strategic stability and settle regional conflicts ,” Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said in his speech dedicated to Russia’s ‘Day of the Diplomatic Worker’.
Diplomatic ties between Russia and the US have been gradually deteriorating over recent years, with the situation becoming especially acute in 2016 as Washington accused Moscow of meddling in the US presidential elections. In 2017, the two nations exchanged a series of tit-for-tat steps targeting diplomatic staff and property, which further strained relations.

” The latest anti-Russian actions undertaken by the United States are only moving the relations between our two nations further into a dead end ,” Ryabkov said.

” Washington’s position towards our country can cause nothing but regret ,” Peskov said, adding: ” It takes two to tango .”
