Peace, stability and security win in any case. Even if there are any political, trade and economic difficulties in the relations between countries, coalitions, there is no other way out as to engage in dialogue,” the minister stressed.

As was reported earlier, U.S. President Donald Trump stated after the talks with Russian leader Vladimir Putin that the US relationship with Russia had never been worse than it was until the Russian-U.S. summit in Helsinki.
