She recalled that when asked about the isolation of Russia during the press conference, Kerry said that "this was done at some particular point of time." Then, she said, Kerry explained how his country fruitfully cooperates with Russia.
"It follows from what has been said that Kerry has publicly renounced the US policy of isolation against Russia," Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page, citing the White House's unsuccessful attempts to implement this policy.
"As for Washington's concrete actions, we shall see what we shall see because 'ye shall know them by their fruits,'" Zakharova added, quoting a Bible verse — Matthew 7:16.
His remarks came hours after Kerry held talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Kremlin. The talks had been slated to last one hour, but ended up lasting more than three hours.
"We don't have a policy aimed at isolating Russia. No," Kerry pointed out.
"But we have always said that when the United States and Russia reach a consensus, it is in the interests of the entire world. I think that it is a demonstration of the maturity of both leaders and the importance of their role," he concluded.
