«In contrast to his ministers and advisers, Trump understands that bad relations with Moscow prevent the US from cooperating with Russia on important issues, starting with the DPRK,» senator Alexey Pushkov wrote on Twitter and added that the new US sanctions would only worsen an already critical state of affairs.
Thus, the Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs commented on the statements of the President and the Secretary of State.
Let’s remind, President Donald Trump said that Russia, bypassing world sanctions, supplies the DPRK with fuel. Tankers were spotted three times off the coast of North Korea.
The head of the White House noted that the Russian Federation did not help the US to build a dialogue with the leadership of the DPRK. Russia, by contrast, reduces to zero the efforts of the United States and China.
