Johnson said about the impossibility of normal relations with Russia and flew to Moscow
The British foreign Secretary Boris Johnson flew to Moscow to meet his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. He said this in his Twitter.
“There can be many differences, but we must continue to work together on Syria, Iran and North Korea,” he wrote.
On the eve of the visit, Johnson said “cannot restore normal relations with Russia while Moscow is trying to destabilize the situation in Europe,” and his visit is not an attempt to establish them. “However, for international security, it is vital that we engaged in dialogue, as the consequences of miscommunication or misunderstandings are fatal. My visit to Russia comes at a critical time when we need to work together to solve the most pressing problems in the world,” reports The Guardian.
17 Dec Johnson compared the confrontation between Russia and the West with the history of the hostility of the Greek city-States of Sparta and Athens. “Russia for me were the closed, unfriendly, militaristic and anti-democratic as Sparta,” said he then.
