Lavrov called unpromising US attempts to dominate the world
According to the minister, Washington has taken a course to suppress the independence of other states, but Moscow believes that the future belongs to sovereign states, President Putin noted
The US policy of dominating all parts of the globe and suppressing the independence of other countries has no prospects, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi during ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) ministerial events.
According to the minister, the United States “is trying to assert its dominance” around the world and demonstrate “permissiveness”.
“Each time, those who follow this understand the futility of a policy according to which you can close your eyes to one situation, one crisis created by the United States, and expect that everything will be more or less good. No, the Americans have taken a course towards suppressing any independence, — Lavrov said (quote from RIA Novosti).
He pointed out that examples of such an approach and violations of their own principles are the actions of the United States in Ukraine, where Washington ignored the “racist policy”; and nurtured the “threat” Moscow, and the visit to Taiwan of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, despite the protests of China.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that a new period of history has begun in the world, as the unipolar system is being demolished, which “Western and so-called supranational elites” would like to keep. However, in this new period, development will be provided by “genuinely sovereign states,” the head of state said.

Last year, US President Joe Biden pointed out that Russia and China were “betting on autocracy” and therefore “democracy must stand up and show what we can do.” In addition, he noted that the United States should be the leader of the free world, because no one else in the world can play such a role. The American leader also claimed that American troops were “fighting” for democracy “on the battlefields around the world” because democracy “is in danger”; and its struggle against authoritarianism is going on.
