    The United Kingdom and the United States should pursue a twin-track strategy of "engagement and vigilance" with Russia instead of further "demonizing" Moscow, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW, January 10 (Sputnik) — The foreign secretary stressed that a twin "strategy of engagement and vigilance is what is required" in Washington and London's relations with Moscow.

    "The point that we have made to the incoming [US] administration and indeed on Capitol Hill is just this, as I said earlier on… it would be folly for us further to demonize Russia or to push Russia into a corner," Johnson told US lawmakers.

    Johnson was in New York to meet key members of US President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday, followed by senior US lawmakers in Washington, DC.
