MOSCOW, June 6. /TASS/. Statements of Deputy US President Mike Pence about what Russia, Iran and terrorism are among the main threats in the world, only cause of regret and disappointment. This opinion was expressed by the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev. According to him, to put on a number of the terrorists and those who fight with them, is “the apotheosis of the absurd”.
As the Senator noted, the statements of Pence show that the administration of the trump “is either totally incompetent, or once again the path blazed by predecessors.” “And most likely the first and the second,” Kosachev wrote on his page in Facebook.
According to the Senator, history should be taught, “that the same approaches can give different results, and the predecessors, he was a failure”. “When you’re in one: a threat is called terrorism and those who are with him really, and not nominally fighting, is the apotheosis of the absurd, which deprives the statements of any meaning other than pure propaganda,” – said Kosachev.
Earlier, Vice-President of the United States Michael Pence, speaking at the Atlantic Council, said that the world has become more dangerous than ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union, given the actions of Russia and Iran, as well as the global threat of terrorism.
