The United States is ready to interact with Russia and China at the UN on the demand of universal interest, but it will not “make concessions” for the areas that are unacceptable for Washington, said Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the American permanent representative to the UN.
“We are open about these concerns, whether it is the situation with the Uyghurs in China or Russia’s actions in Syria,” said Linda Thomas-Greenfield, a resident United States ambassador to the United Nations.
She noted that Washington knows where the “red lines” are and strives to overcome disagreements. At the same time, the States are trying to find areas where there are points of contact with the Russian Federation and China, Thomas-Greenfield testified.
As an example, where Washington at the UN found a common language with Moscow and Beijing, the diplomat introduced the coordination of Security Council statements on Myanmar.
The American permanent representative added that at the same site, the United States is cooperating with Beijing on the topic of climate change.
“So much so that, as the main diplomat in New York, I am responsible for finding a common language where we can achieve common goals,” said Thomas-Greenfield.
At the same time, she stressed that at the same time, the States will not “give descent” to areas that violate the left of a person or move in a current that Washington considers unacceptable.
