Russia has warned the United States of a point of no return in the two countries’ bilateral relations if a bill proposed by US House of Representatives members calling for Russia to be declared a state sponsor of terrorism goes forward.
Alexander Darchiev, head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s North American Department, said this in an interview with the TASS news agency.
I would like to mention the legislative initiative currently being discussed in Congress to declare Russia a state sponsor of terrorism.
If passed, it would mean that Washington would cross the point of no return, with mostly serious collateral damage to bilateral diplomatic relations, Darchiev detailed, issuing a warning to the US.
The Russian foreign ministry official pointed out that, should the initiative go through, the consequences could range from a weakening of relations between the two countries to a complete breakdown.
Nevertheless, Darchiev assured that he did not want to enter into hypothetical speculations about what is possible and what is not possible in the current turbulent situation, while condemning the fact that the United States has trampled on international law.
