Dmitry Peskov agrees with Donald Trump on Clinton reset policy
The relations between Russia and the United States are at the lowest point, they couldn't be worse, the Kremlin's press secretary Dmitri Peskov claimed, the Voice of America reports on Wednesday.
"By now, as we know, the level of our bilateral relations leaves much to be desired, something is unlikely to deteriorate them even more, it's totally hit rock bottom," Peskov said.
Despite this, he expressed the Kremlin's hope to improve ties with the U.S. under Donald Trump's presidential administration. Peskov also agreed with the U.S. president-elect statement that the term of the Clinton-era 'reset policy' with Russia had been discredited and ran out dry.
"As for 'the reset of relations' words, we might probably agree with the president-elect, the word has truly compromised itself. The outcasts of this reset are not of those we expected to see," he said.
Russian president Vladimir Putin has repeatedly claimed he was ready to rebuild good and strong relations with the United States and he relies on Washington's mutuality, the Kremlin's spokesperson said.
