U.S. sanctions against Russia will be needed if Moscow "will refrain from aggression abroad and become a friendly partner of the United States and Europe," said the adviser to the President of the United States national security Robert O'Brien.
In an article for the Washington Post About'’brien recalled the many sanctions imposed against Russia by the administration of Donald trump.
"No President since (Ronald) Reagan showed Moscow as determination. Like Reagan, President trump is seeking a new path in relations with Russia — one which Russia will refrain from aggression abroad and become a friendly partner of the United States and Europe. In such a world, sanctions against Russia would not be needed, and trade between our countries has blossomed. The Russians, the Americans and the whole world will benefit from such a relationship," wrote About'Brien.
Russia earlier rejected the West’s allegations of aggression.
Speaking about areas of potential collaboration USA with Russia,'Brien noted that in the coming months the two countries would hold a dialogue on counter-terrorism.
"both Russia And the United States were exposed to their attacks violent extremism. U.S. officials are likely to communicate with their colleagues in intelligence and law enforcement agencies on these issues in the coming months," said O'Brien.
