Lavrov said: "Considering that the West, led by the United States, has embarked on an unprecedented intensification of relations with Russia, imposed absolutely unprecedented sanctions, and used other dirty competitive methods to try to prevent our development... At the same time, We will never fall into isolation, nor will we fall into self-isolation, nor will we fall into confrontation. We are willing to cooperate with all countries willing to cooperate on the basis of equality and without any ultimatum."
He added that if the West is willing, "even if tomorrow, we can restore our relationship on the basis of mutual benefit."
Lavrov emphasized: "But at this stage, we temporarily have no confidence in the reliability of our partners, and it is impossible to have confidence."
He said that for this reason, Russia is import substitution for everything that depends or used to depend on Western technology.Keywords:
