The European Union and the United States decided to join forces to counter Russia and China. This was stated by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell following a meeting of the EU Council at the level of foreign ministers with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, TASS reports.
According to Borrell, a rich conversation took place today, during which the EU and the US agreed to jointly respond to external challenges, including counteraction to Russia and China.
In addition, according to Borrell, the European Union and the United States intend to prove to the world that democracy is superior to all other social systems, and agreed to secure world leadership in the fight against the pandemic, economic recovery and the promotion of democracy in the world.
Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that the desire of Western countries to resolve global issues in a narrow circle without the participation of Russia and China is perplexing. It was about the Munich Security Conference, held on February 19, in which only the leadership of the US and the EU, as well as the heads of the UN and WHO, took part.
In turn, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that Washington is ready to cooperate with the Russian Federation on strategic stability issues. Also, according to him, the United States wants to establish interaction with all countries, including the Russian Federation and China, to develop norms of behavior in space.
