Former Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin is convinced that Washington’s signal from the visit of Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan is immediately seen in the Kremlin.
He expressed this opinion in Facebookreports Ukrinform.
According to Klimkin, the United States “showed its teeth” – twice in recent days: the first time when it killed al-Qaeda leader al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan, the second – when the speaker of Congress paid a visit to Taiwan.
“Many of us are afraid that raising the stakes by the Americans will distract them from our war with Russia. In vain, everything is exactly the opposite. The Kremlin regime does not understand any civilized diplomacy, only force. The teeth shown by the United States to China and the terrorists were immediately seen in the Kremlin,” the ex-minister noted.
The diplomat stressed that Washington’s signal “is very simple: we are not afraid of anyone in this world and we will get everyone who threatens us.”
“Simple and very accessible. For everyone, and first of all for the Kremlin,” he summed up.
As reported, despite the protests of China, Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi began a visit to Taiwan.
Earlier, Beijing has repeatedly expressed threats and warnings about the consequences for the United States in the event of its official visit to Taipei.
