Moscow welcomes US President Joe Biden’s statements about his intentions to avoid escalation with Russia, but the current US administration is at odds with its words, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
“The message leaves an ambiguous impression. while Washington is not ready to give up unpromising attempts to force pressure and baseless accusations against our country of some malicious activity”, – Zakharova said at a briefing on Thursday.
“If the American side is really inclined to dialogue, it is high time to put aside the confrontational rhetoric by taking practical steps to correct the abnormal state in which bilateral relations are now through the fault of the United States. Otherwise, sliding down an inclined plane will continue”, Zakharova noted.Pompeo urged not to soften the policy of US pressure on Iran
