Russian President Vladimir Putin during a recent press conference called «strange» by the us congressmen to put Russia in one row with Iran and North Korea and encourage Russia to cooperate on Iran and North Korea.

«We do not put Russia into the same category as Iran and North Korea, of course not!», exclaimed Johnson, answering the question, not whether the same, and the us Congress, engaged and United Kingdom.

On Friday, Johnson will have a bilateral meeting with Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow.

«Russia since 1949 was a nuclear power, it is legitimate, Russia since the Foundation of the UN was, and remains, like us, a permanent member of the security Council, and we certainly do not put it on a par with Iran and North Korea. We believe Russia is a strong country, which we respect, with whom we have serious disagreements, and we must work together, not only in the name of foreign policy interests, but also bilateral,» said Johnson.

«People are complicated creatures. People can simultaneously experience a variety of feelings, even to people with whom they share a very close relationship. We have a lot of difficulty with Russia, but with Russia and cooperate, and that is my mission!», — said the British foreign Secretary.
