MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. Accusations of Russia that she allegedly is the main threat to the world community, from the Prime Minister of great Britain Theresa may irresponsible and unfounded. This is stated in the commentary official representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, posted Tuesday on the website of the Russian foreign Ministry.
“In Moscow drew attention to the statements of the Mae against Russia, made during a Banquet at the Lord mayor of the city of London on 13 November. This time our country is on a scale of “threats to the world community” is no longer placed on a par with other calls, and in the first place,” – said the diplomat.
“A set of messages is not new, but the thing that unites them is irresponsible and unfounded nature brought against Russia charges,” she said.
As noted Zakharova, “the idea of protecting the global order especially cynically it sounds like from the head of the British Cabinet”. “Enough to remember the aggressive actions of Britain in Iraq and Libya, which led not to the strengthening of international law, and to the death and suffering of millions of people and destabilize whole regions. While London demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of what is happening in the world and the essence of the international legal order based on the UN Charter, which Britain undertakes to protect,” she stated.
According to the official representative the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, the UK has chosen Russia as an external enemy to distract public attention from the difficult situation related to the process of withdrawal from the European Union and internal division. “This is regrettable, especially at a time when British interests given the ambitions of the country becoming a “Global Britain” would be a multi-vector, pragmatic and effective foreign policy. Such a course would open to the United Kingdom for more opportunities in new growth markets and would strengthen its position in the world due to the development of dialogue with other countries. London chosen the path of confrontation is clearly not going to help implement the stated goals,” concluded Zakharov.
