“Building up confrontation with an aim to put pressure on Russia with sanctions is futureless. We are not going to give up our national interests and fundamental stance on the key issues,” read the statement by the Russian foreign ministry issued after the talks between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.
“At the same time, the Russian side is ready for constructive interaction with the United States both in the sphere of bilateral relations and in the international arena where our countries bear special responsibility for global stability," the statement added.
Moscow also warned that US plans to provide the government in Kiev with weapons and military hardware would bring about “unpredictable consequences” which might “disrupt efforts to reach a political settlement in southeast Ukraine," the statement said.
According to the statement, Lavrov and Kerry also discussed several other issues in their meeting including Iran’s nuclear program, the Syrian conflict and the latest developments in Yemen.
