RIA Novosti

On the sidelines of the security conference in Munich his opinion about Russia’s role in the world was expressed by the former Minister of national security of the USA Michael Chertoff. He said that the United States should respect Russia as a world power.

Chertoff has told RIA Novosti that he sees no reason for unnecessary neglect. The ex-Minister is confident that the solution to the world’s problems jointly with Russia should be based not on the desire a President trump as “the more substantial the platform.”

However, Chertoff said that in relations between Russia and the United States “there are areas where joint work is impossible”.

Earlier, Vice-President Michael Penny noted that Washington and Moscow can find new points of contact.
