Moscow not security rival to Washington: US envoy

Jun 10 2013, 8:48pm CDT | by

Moscow, June 11 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The US administration does not regard Russia as a rival in security matters but views Moscow as a partner with whom it can jointly resolve global issues, the US ambassador to Russia said Monday.

Moscow, June 11 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The US administration does not regard Russia as a rival in security matters but views Moscow as a partner with whom it can jointly resolve global issues, the US ambassador to Russia said Monday.

"We do not consider Russia as a rival to the United States either in security or in the economy. President Obama favours relations that would benefit both countries rather than force a 'zero-sum game' on them, as during the Cold War," according to a Russian-language transcript of McFaul's speech at a seminar of the Moscow School of Political Studies.

Having "better relations with Russia" is in Washington's national interests, McFaul said. "We believe so, and are working towards this goal," he added.

McFaul cited nuclear arms control, and the situations in North Korea, Iran, and also Afghanistan, especially after the planned US troop withdrawal in 2014, as among the global issues that Moscow and Washington need to address together.

During this period, many will be able to attend schools and hold jobs. "We are reaching a point of implosion, if we have not already reached it," Judge Dana Leigh Marks of San Francisco, who has been deciding immigration cases since 1987 ...
