The Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney American, who recently described Russia as “enemy number one” in Washington, has responded to criticism of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in an article published by the journal Foreign Policy on Wednesday.
“It’s not a coincidence that it was against me that M.Medvedev address his critics. Obviously, the Russians prefer to do business with the current administration of the White House,” wrote M.Romney.
In the text, the former governor of Massachusetts has again blasted the U.S. leader Barack Obama for his willingness to show “greater flexibility” in negotiations with Moscow on missile defense.
“This flexibility, what will ? (…). He (Obama, note) has abandoned our missile projects in Poland without obtaining concessions from Moscow. He gave Russia the right to further reduction of our nuclear arsenals, “said M.Romney.
He said the dialogue Obama-Medvedev raises issues not only in Washington’s policy toward Moscow, but also to the entire foreign policy of the United States.
Mitt Romney has also denounced the congratulations by the U.S. State Department to the Russian people during the election of Vladimir Putin as president. He said the poll was marred by fraud and intimidation.
Monday, March 26, M.Romney had accused Russia of “support the worst regimes in the world”, describing it as “enemy number one geopolitical United States”. In response, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has advised the Republican candidate “appeal to reason” and to “use his head”.
