Russia could be isolated if Washington and Moscow fail to reach bargains on Syria. This statement, as RIA Novosti reports, made at a press briefing, White house spokesman Sean Spicer.
“But if we can’t make a deal that meets our national interests, then we will not. In this particular case, there’s no question that Russia will be isolated,” he said.
According to Spicer, Russia shumoizolyatsiya from the world community, because they put themselves on a par with Syria and North Korea that are “rogue States”.
“The only countries that do not support the US position is Syria, North Korea, Iran and Russia. All of them are failed States, with the exception of Russia. It’s not the best time to have a cocktail party with these countries,” said Spicer.
At the same time, according to him, the US open to strategic cooperation with Russia and to achieve common goals, for example, the victory over the “Islamic state”, but will stand up for their principles and values.
The issue of sanctions against Russia over Syria, the U.S. administration did not comment on. “As you know, we’re not talking about specific actions as long as they’re not ready,” said Spicer.
