"If Turkey and Russia can make up, so can Washington and Moscow," the article read.
There are a number of areas where Moscow and Washington could cooperate, including Syria, Iran, North Korea, China, and the fight against terrorism. No serious global challenge can be tackled without joint efforts by Russia and the US.
The author also noted that Russia’s policy towards other countries is not aggressive. Moscow’s policy in Georgia and Ukraine cannot pose a threat to Washington because it has deep historic roots. At the same time, the US is provoking Russia by expanding NATO to its borders.
However, the fact is that Russia and the US have nothing to quarrel over, an article on the Russian analytical website Svobodnaya Pressa read.
There is a significant difference in the basic approach to foreign policy between Moscow and Washington. While Russia has insisted that every nation has the right to independently determine its future, the US prefers to dictate their rules to other countries.
On the other hand, the US conception also contradicts with the Chinese vision of foreign policy. But this fact cannot prevent the two from fruitful cooperation in many spheres.
"There is an ideological power struggle underway among US political elite. There are two groups. The first insists that the US should strengthen itself from inside. This idea has been promoted by Donald Trump. The other group advocates the idea of global hegemony. But the situation is changing," he told Svobodnaya Pressa.
After the Cold War ended the US has seen a number of new centers of power across the globe, particularly Russia. The Americans do not like this, but this is the reality, he added.
"However, countries like Russia and China are not seeking world hegemony. The US should return to the Henry Kissinger’s idea of five global centers of power. Luckily, there are a lot of rational politicians in Washington. We just have to wait for the current surge of anti-Russian hysteria to be over," Volodin pointed out.
