In the development of our bilateral relations, we are always ready to go as far as our partners are ready for this”, – said Peskov.
He also noted that “Moscow has never represented and does not represent a threat to anyone,” but also “never and anyone, including the United States, will not be allowed to threaten, dictate something or infringe on Russia’s interests”.
