Russia Calls for ‘post-West’ World Order

Al-Manar | February 18, 2017

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called Saturday for an end to a world order dominated by the West and said Moscow wanted to establish a “pragmatic” relationship with the United States.

Lavrov said that the time when the West called the shots was over and, dismissing NATO as a relic of the Cold War, added: “I hope that (the world) will choose a democratic world order — a post-West one — in which each country is defined by its sovereignty.”

Lavrov said Moscow wanted to build relations with Washington which would be “pragmatic with mutual respect and acknowledgement of our responsibility for global stability.”

The two countries had never been in direct conflict, he said, noting that they were actually close neighbors across the Baring Straits.

Russia wanted to see a “common space of good neighbour relations from Vancouver to Vladivostok,” he added.

Pence was in Europe along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and defense chief James Mattis as part of efforts to reassure allies rattled by President Donald Trump’s “America First” stance and his calls for improved ties with Russia despite the continuing crisis in Ukraine.

  1. Lavrov, Putin, Trump and others need to be one voice in exposing the deep state’s media propaganda schemes. Today, with Richard Gage, Christopher Bollyn and Kevin Barrett about to give their talks at the Nation of Islam conference in Detroit, we can leverage the demise of the Jews media. The banner says the program will start in a few minutes.

    The truth about 9-11 tears down the house of cards (false narratives).
