Russia welcomes the lifting of the sanctions Western partners, if they are ready to remove them
“Now, when people talk about the return of the cold war and in this context mention the iron curtain, perhaps this is due to loud statements that are still no-no, and heard about the need to isolate Russia. Well, where insulation there, so that’s and some iron curtain”, the Minister said in an interview with “Radio Russia”.
“But now such a situation in the world, the era of globalization, in an era of interdependence, what if you lower the iron curtain, we can inadvertently yourself something to pinch,” he emphasized.
“In the case of sanctions, for example, our response is very clear, – noted the Minister. – “To spite of mum I will freeze ears” – has already been a lot of such metaphorical descriptions of situations. So the main thing is what happens in life.”
