The Russian foreign Ministry, the words of the White house about the “isolation of Russia” in United Nations (UN) has called “strange”. This statement was made by Deputy chief Minister Gennady Gatilov. His words TASS reports.

“A strange statement. On the contrary, we seek cooperation with all countries, including primarily the United States, in the framework of the UN. I think that speech should go not about to put someone in isolation, and to seek common ground and thereby reach a mutually acceptable solutions to existing problems” – said Gatilov.

On April 28 the White house issued a statement in which one of the merits of Donald trump on the post of the President of the United States have called greater “isolation of Russia in the UN”. According to the report, the goal has been achieved through coordinated action with China. April 27, the U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley noted the importance of putting pressure on Moscow to settle the armed conflict in Syria.
