RT Interviews Sergey Lavrov
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
On Christmas day, RT's English, Spanish and Arabic correspondents interviewed Lavrov, a world-class diplomat. None of his Western counterparts match his distinction.
He credited his predecessor Evgeny Primakov for envisioning multi-world polarity – world's apart from America's exploitive system.
Russia fosters inclusiveness and flexibility, working cooperatively with all nations, opposing imperial lawlessness.
Lavrov criticized Washington's unfair treatment of RT and Sputnik News, its actions arbitrary and unacceptable.
He called for de-escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula to avoid catastrophic war if launched.
"No sane person would push the situation into an actual war," he said. "But even when nobody wants a war, an arms race always carries a risk of human error leading to an unwanted escalation."
