Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, on the air of the Sunday Time program on Channel One, announced the possibility of betrayal by the United States. His words are quoted by TASS.

“Washington is pragmatic in its actions in the international arena, somewhere utilitarian. When the United States seems to meet their interests, they can betray to a certain extent those with whom they were friends, cooperated and who ensured their positions in different regions of the world,” Lavrov believes.

He recalled former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and said that “Washington did not lift a finger when he was arrested.” The diplomat also mentioned Afghanistan, noting that the United States was guided by its “selfish interests” there.

Earlier, Lavrov drew attention to the fact that the borders of NATO are shifting further and further east, and warned the West about the risk of undermining relations with Russia in this way. According to the Foreign Minister, the West’s attempts to attract Ukraine to NATO will not strengthen the security of the North Atlantic Alliance and will be a violation of the official political commitment assumed by the presidents of the alliance member countries.
